SRS Wallcliffe Chardonnay 2018

SRS Wallcliffe Chardonnay 2018

The 2018 Chardonnay shows lovely lifted fruit from a classic Margaret River vintage together with some delicate savoury notes from solids and wild ferment. Grapefruit, white peach and dried pear give way to barrel ferment and match stick complexities. Fine fruit flavours, wild ferment and subtle sulphides contribute a delicious savoury oyster shell or saline character to the palate, giving the wine greater complexity and overall purity. This style ultimately complements many modern Australian food flavours. 

After overnight cold storage the fruit was whole bunch pressed into French oak puncheons before undergoing full wild yeast fermentation. To achieve a portion with high grape solids we rotated the press after filling. The key to successful wild fermentation is the use of high turbidity juices, minimal sulphur dioxide, low alcohols and juices with good nutrient content. The SRS Chardonnay was barrel fermented in 40% new French puncheons and then aged for 9 months. The 2018 vintage didn’t require any lees stirring or MLF, we believed the wine to have ample texture and complexity.
