Sam Miranda Chardonnay 2015

The Wine
Estate grown and made! A cooler season allowed for a longer ripening yet maintained the natural acidity in the fruit at harvest. Transferred to French oak hogsheads where the natural yeast present completed fermentation. Left on lees for 12 months filtered and bottled. A classic natural cool climate chardonnay that will evolve in the bottle over the next 6-8 years

Winemaking
Transferred to French Oak hogsheads (300L) the natural yeast present completed fermentation. The wine was kepy on lees for 12 months with regular lees stiring before being filtered and bottled in June 2013.

Viticulture
Arguably the best known white variety which can be grown in a wide range of climates with the best examples coming from the cooler regions of the world. Sourced from a our Myrrhee vineyard in the heart of the King Valley. Harvested in the cool of the night in late February to retain the fresh acidity and primary fruit flavours.
