Thorne Hill Chardonnay Semillon 2017 (12 x 750mL) Murray Darling

Vinification - Due to the longer, slow ripening season in 2017, parcels of Chardonnay and Semillon grapes were harvested early for citrusy characters, and some riper patches displaying more intense stone fruit characters were harvested later in the season. Several different yeast strains were used to ferment different parcels of fruit which contributed to a variety of fruit and savoury nuances. One parcel was fermented with wild yeast and underwent malolactic fermentation, contributing to some subtle nutty flavours in the final blend.
