750ml Australia Chardonnay FULL BODIED WHITE Hunter Valley MARGAN BREAKING GROUND CHARDONNAY 2021 NEW New South Wales Wine
MARGAN BREAKING GROUND CHARDONNAY 2021
CRISP STOCKINGER GLOSS
CLASSIC / SUSTAINABLE / 750ML
A lean layered Chardonnay. A short period in a new Stockinger has rewarded the wine with a subtle reduction and toast. Crisp primary notes of crushed apple, pecan and citrus.
From the Producer: Fruit sourced from our Saxonvale vineyard, planted in the 70’s. Mostly I10V1 clone, which provides a particularly bright and lean fruit profile. As such, texture is built through indigenous ferment on light solids in a mixture of stainless steel, new Stockinger and seasoned French 500L oak puncheons. I sought to find balance between fresh lees reduction, crispness of primary fruit with a slight lift of wild ferment aldehyde. This tends towards the finer end of the Chardonnay spectrum with no malolactic fermentation. Unfined/unfiltered.
