2018 Brothers Malmsbury Chardonnay - Case of 12
Such a cool expression of Macedon Chardy from this unique site in the very north of the region.
A giving style of Chardonnay with lashings of oatmeal, lemon myrtle and lime pith. Long and balanced pallet. Very poised, very delicious.
From the Rush Bros. vineyard on the ridge north east of the town of Malmsbury.
Planted on own roots in 1988, dry grown in mixed basalt, rusted basalt and quartz soils.
Gentle whole bunch press, settled in tank and very long, slow (one year +) fermentation in mostly old french oak.
Racked in late feb 2019, further 6 months on lees in tank.
Tiny amounts of sulphur used during the movements post fermentation, less than 25 ppm total. Bottled winter 2019.
