2021 Briar Ridge, 'The Squire' Chardonnay

This Chardonnay is rich and opulent packed with notes of peach and melon. Subtle oak influence provides structure and spice notes with a natural nectarine like acidity adding a vibrant line. Each individual block was harvested once optimal ripeness was achieved then whole bunched pressed off skins. This wine was fermented in 100% French oak (40% new) then once completed, left on lees for 10 months to build palate texture. The Soil is a combination of duplex loams (mostly sandy) over shale. The wine is made from vines across three blocks, all with different aspects. The vine age on each block is 24 years. ABV: 13.0%, pH: 3.53, TA: 6.0g/L
