About Time Wine Echunga Chardonnay 2020
A nose of white peach, ginger and struck match. Great intensity of flavour follows on the palate. Juicy, yet saline and savoury, with textural and creamy roundness in the mouth. Well balanced, the finish is long with a hint of spice.
25 year old vineyard in Echunga, 400m above sea level. Hand-picked, Bernard Clone 76, whole bunch pressed into French (Damy) 300L Hogsheads with a mixture of 25% new and 2nd/3rd use barrels. The wine naturally went through wild yeast fermentation and malolactic fermentation completed with great natural high acid levels from the vintage. Regular lees stirring was undertaken. Unfined and unfiltered. Bottled in February 2021 after 10 months in barrel. 13.2% alcohol.
