2016 Wildberry Estate Reserve Chardonnay

2016 Wildberry Estate Reserve Chardonnay Margaret River...$14.99
Regular price $30
This wine is drinking amazingly right now!!!

The undoubted complexity of this wine comes from picking on 2 and 24 Feb in Wilyabrup and Carbunup and clones 95 and Gin Gin, the fruit pressed on arrival through a must chiller, chilled for 12 hours, partly pressed to used French oak, all remaining juice fermented at 12-15 degrees C in tank, 2 months lees stirring, with a total of 9 months in barrel. This is the ultimate in synergy, the tactile facets constantly changing, from creamy to acid, the fruit ranging through white peach, rock melon, pear and hazelnut.
