White Wine by Kooyong from Victoria, Australia. Kooyong Estate Chardonnay comprises fruit from a combination of blocks within our Faultline and Farrago vineyards. It offers a broader taste of the Kooyong vineyard, with parcels from various soils and mesoclimates blended together to create the Estate label. Year after year the same blocks are consistently chosen, giving this wine an underlying similarity across vintages. The grapes are gently whole-bunch pressed directly into French oak barriques (15% new) where fermentation takes place without inoculation. After fermentation the wine is aged on lees (without battonage) for 11 months. It is bottled without fining and with minimal filtration. Tight aromas of white stone fruits, oatmeal, fresh ginger and mint are complemented with higher zesty notes. The palate shows the hallmarks of the 2016 vintage - deep and powerful with subtle texture and citrus flavors that carry through to a long, chalky and energetic finish. The mid-weight of the wine will give early appeal, however the acid line and pithy finish indicate rewards for mid-term cellaring.
