Our Jones Road Estate Chardonnay is a selection of superior quality in the vineyard and made with a view to adding gentle complexity in the winery. Whole bunch pressing, minimal juice settling and incorporating grape solids during barrel fermentation all work to deliver a complex and engaging young chardonnay. Oak maturation is carefully monitored to ensure the right amount of time in oak is married with the right balance of new and seasoned barrels.
- VIC - Mornington Peninsula
Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, wild yeast-fermented in a range of oak barrels. It is very lively and refreshing; if any mlf has been used, it is not obvious, the palate long and precise, the balance excellent. Rating 94 - Drink by 2018 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2013)
