Description

This wine fermented naturally in stainless steel. It was transferred to French oak to complete fermentation. Natural malolactic was completed in full while ageing on lees in barrel. The wine was racked out of barrel after 1 year, allowed to settle and racked once for further clarity. A minimal amount of sulphur was added. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. A nose layered with spice pear, wet stone and floral notes. Creamy minerality on the midpalate with a long, steely finish.

Wismer-Foxcroft is a terroir-driven vineyard on the Twenty Mile Bench and this Chardonnay mines that vein of profound minerality that is buried deep in the soil found there… Such grace and beauty on the nose with an immediate saline sensation with flint and river-rock that permeates the Bosc pear, apple skin and ever so subtle toasted oak spice notes. It is crisp and soulful in the mouth with integrated stone fruits, gunflint and steely resolve that is revealed in layer after layer. This wine keeps coming at you and never loses its grip. There is a subtle reductive note on the palate with bright acidity that keeps this Chardonnay lively and interesting through such a long and sensuous finish. It is a beautiful wine, one I keep thinking about a week after the bottle was drained. Go get it.
