2016 Margaret River Chardonnay
The juice was racked but not settled giving more mouthfeel and texture. Using a combination of new and old oak as well as a portion through malolactic fermentation provided a creamier, textured style. Battonage during maturation also enhanced texture. Wine from the Margaret River Region.
