Order a bottle of our NEW Unoaked Chardonnay 2018, and our barrel-aged Chardonnay 2018 now to follow along with a guided tasting comparison of the two on Instagram LIVE. Same vintage, same grape varietal, both partial Appassimento wines, but different fermentation and aging techniques!

The 2018 vintage benefited from a very hot summer, leading to ripe fruit with complex flavours. The grapes for the Unoaked Chardonnay were harvested in early October, in comparison, the grapes for the barrel-aged Chardonnay were harvested in late September. For each wine, a portion of the grapes were set aside to dry for 1 month in the traditional Appassimento method for added depth and complexity.

For the Unoaked Chardonnay, fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, while the Chardonnay 2018 was barrel-fermented and aged for 9 months in French oak. 

Enjoy a glass of each wine at home while tuning in to Ed & Kelly's virtual tasting, discussing the differences and similarities in these two wines.

On the nose are aromas of mandarin orange, ripe apple, pear, orange blossom and fresh fruit pastry. With rich flavours to match the nose supported by a balanced acidity. The finish is lengthy and refreshing with notes of sweet tropical fruit and blossoms.
