Reserve Chardonnay 2021

Having gently extracted the juice from Grown & Wine Vineyards' premium Chardonnay grapes, 60% went into French and American oak barrels for 3 months and 40% went into stainless steel. The ferments were carefully monitored and only premium "ingredients" were used to aid and encourage the best results. During the fermentation, all eight of the barrels were dosed with malolactic bacteria, which converts malic acid naturally present in the grape into smooth, buttery lactic acid. This gives the wine a fuller, silkier mouthfeel and allows the delicate flavours of Chardonnay to shine. Expect to find charred wood, toasted marshmallow, and lemon mingled with coconut and vanilla on the nose. The palate to follow is rich with lemon custard, grilled pineapple, and honeydew melon, finishing with a subtle minerality. 


Suggested Food Pairings: Lobster with lemon butter, pesto pasta with seared scallops and toasted pine nuts, pineapple upside down cake.
