2013 Chardonnay

“Shar-dun-nay”

History

The Dromana Estate is our Premium range and was created to showcase the high quality of fruit grown on our vines.

One of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay originating from France is made in a wide range of styles from lean, sparkling Blanc de Blancs to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak.

Wine Making

The Chardonnay fruit was handpicked and gently whole bunch pressed. The wine spent 12 months in French Oak and was allowed to ferment by the naturally present indigenous yeast. Extended lees contact and a degree of malolactic fermentation has added weight to the complexity, moving towards a more traditional style Chardonnay.
