From the 17-year old vines of Quarry Road estate vineyard, farmed organically and biodynamically. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest.
From the certified organic and biodynamic Quarry Road Vineyard, comes the 2015 Unfiltered Chardonnay. This unique wine was fermented in new French Oak with indigenous yeast, produced without the addition of sulphites and hand bottled directly from the barrel without filtration. The result may be slight but harmless clouding, sedimentation or "spritzing” to occur. Ripe with aromas of wet stone minerality, sweet citrus, hints of melon and shy oak. The palate displays bright acidity with citrus zest, blanched almonds, crisp Mutsu apple and lightly toasted oak. Enjoy within 6 months of purchase as sulphur was not added to aid in preservation.
A tangy yet approachable Chardonnay, this wine calls for foods with some richness such as mushroom risotto, turkey pot pie or salmon wellington.
