Merricks Estate 2015 Chardonnay

360.00

94 Points - James Halliday WOW Factor Whites June 2017

Meticulous attention in the vineyard coupled with some of the earliest plantings of Chardonnay on the Mornington Peninsula are the driving force behind the 2015 Estate Chardonnay. Skin contacted, cold settled, barrel fermented, lees work and partial MLF. Stone fruit and citrus are harmoniously supported with considered winemaking building complexity, structure, texture and ultimately balance. A fuller style befitting some richer food matches including Guinea fowl with wild mushrooms and slow roasted tomatoes.

‘A bright yellow flecked with green, this wine expressed the richer equation of Mornington Chardonnay. Apricot, white peach and quince mosey with a core of cashew and a high-wire,

mineral-clad pulse melded to juicy natural acidity. The wine is at once generous and restrained; warm and sleek. The oak s a supporting adjunct.’ - James Halliday 94 Points WOW Factor Whites

Wine Making Notes

The grapes were handpicked before whole bunch pressing. The  cold settled juice was then fermented in French oak barriques where it matured for ten months. Malo content is 40%  and it was blended back with the un malo wine thus retaining good fruit flavour while the malo component gives the wine the softness and fullness together with it’s length of finish.
