Winery Tasting Notes
Bright, pale lemon with green hues
Fresh with intense citrus and white peach. Classic chardonnay varietal aromas.
Characteristic Chardonnay fruit flavours. The palate has crisp acidity, very good length and has a soft mouth feel aided by the use of extended lees contact and the introduction of malolactic influence. This wine is fresh, and uncomplicated which is the philosophy behind all Poets Corner wines.
The Chardonnay parcels for this wine had regular vineyard visits to ensure selection based on freshness and varietal expression. All fruit at optimal ripeness and quality was harvested in the cool of the night and transported to the winery.
After crushing, pressing and clarifying the juice, it was then fermented in stainless steel tanks using neutral wine yeasts. Post fermentation the parcels were held on yeast lees for two to three months in order to increase mouth feel and aid complexity prior to final filtration and bottling. There is no oak used throughout the winemaking process so we are totally reliant on the expression of the varietal flavours.
