How to say it

Trooshard Shardonnay

Product guide note

Chardonnay is one of those grape varieties which when grown in a hot place like California can make quite big, full bodied and rich wines. This wine is also dry and refreshing with citrus, ripe pineapple and pear flavours.. It has been aged in oak barrels which also gives it some toasted oak and nutmeg flavours.

Production note

All of the fruit was whole cluster pressed; this technique produces a full-bodied wine with delicate structure. Our Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented in French oak (33% new) using various yeast strains. After fermentation the wine remains in barrel on the lees (sur lie) for 10 months. A partial malolactic fermentation (30% complete) allows the wine to retain its natural acidity, while regular stirring of the lees (battonage) gives added complexity and richness.
