The Chardonnay is a complex dry white. It derives it’s flavours and texture not just from the natural compounds of the grape but with the introduction of Oak and batonnage. These elements help to add texture and palate weight to support the grapes natural generous and elegant fruit flavours. This style of wine represents a great challenge to winemakers as it uses a number of different techniques. The introduction of new elements, such as oak and batonnage, require careful judgement and clear thinking from the winemaker to maintain the wine’s balance and respecting natural fruit flavours.

This is sourced from Manjimup, giving the guys at MyattsField an interesting alternative to their traditional fruit sourcing in the Perth Hills. Has a nice mix of peach and lemon scents on the nose with a creamy roasted nuts influence. Nice minerally spicy palate with a hint of citrusy grapefruit. Long and persistent. Impressive wine.
