SRS Chardonnay 2011

SRS Chardonnay 2011

WINEMAKING NOTES
After 24 hours refrigeration, the fruit for the 2011 SRS Chardonnay was whole bunch pressed and settled overnight. Turbid juice was then transferred into barrel where the wine was then left to undergo wild ferment. The secret to successful wild ferment is high turbidity juices and low alcohols. MLF was blocked; I believe Margaret River chardonnay has enough texture; MLF often thickens the wines and interferes with the fruit purity. The 2011 SRS Chardonnay was barrel fermented in French oak, 40% new, the remainder being two and three year seasoned wood.
 
TASTING NOTES
The 2011 SRS Chardonnay is finely structured with tight citrus and stone fruit flavours. Classic southern Margaret River Chardonnay fruit flavours of dried pear, grapefruit and melon are supported by subtle French oak. The SRS Chardonnay has some complex sulphides in the struck match or popcorn spectrum; these give the wine a lovely savoury finish. After 12 months in the finest French oak, with regular stirring the wine was filtered and bottled in February 2012.
