Grant Burge 'Benchmark' Chardonnay 2013

2013 CHARDONNAY

THE FRUIT:

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the premium regions of Barossa Valley, Eden Valley and the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. The 2013 vintage produced low crops and small berries which ripened perfectly giving rich, concentrated flavours and excellent acid retention, which will all be reflected in the quality of the Chardonnay.

THE WINEMAKING:

The fruit was crushed and cold-settled before starting fermentation. The Juice was gently racked prior to undergoing fermentation in stainless steel tanks for about three weeks with a small percentage (3%) aged in barrels. A portion of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation and all of the wine was aged on yeast lees for four months to add complexity and viscosity to the wine. After settling, filtering and stabilising, the wine was then blended and bottled.
