Woodlands Wilyabrup Valley Chardonnay 2015

The colour of this wine is a bright intense gold. Still a touch closed, the nose is dense and brooding – with a complex of nectarine, peach, pear, and toasty French oak. The palate shows the classic Chardonnay characters of nectarine and white peach. Very dense, powerful, and pristine, this wine has a long life ahead of it.

Woodlands Wilyabrup Valley Chardonnay 2015

Our ‘Chloe’ is produced from a 0.8 hectare plot located at the north-east corner of the Woodlands Vineyard. The plot lies at the top of a south facing slope where the soil is composed of deep loam topsoil over clay. This plot is the most shaded location on our vineyard- protected on the west, north and east.

 

This is the second vintage of Chloe produced with our Delta Oscillys Destemmer. This destemmer receives the fruit from our vibrating hooper, and removes the stems by a swinging motion rather than using a traditional beating shaft and rotating cage. This process is much more gentle on the fruit, and has the added advantage that shot berries, dry grapes and unripe grapes remain on the stems (and out of the wine).

 

This wine was hand picked, with half of the fruit destemmed and pressed to tank for debourbage, and the other half whole bunch pressed to barrel. Fermentation proceeded well, with 100% of the wine fermenting without the addition of yeast. Following fermentation the wine remained in barrel with the lees stirred once a month. 

 

The colour of this wine is a bright intense gold. Still a touch closed, the nose is dense and brooding – with a complex of nectarine, peach, pear, and toasty French oak. The palate shows the classic Chardonnay characters of nectarine and white peach. Very dense, powerful, and pristine, this wine has a long life ahead of it.

 

This wine will be best enjoyed from 2020 – 2025.
