Lawson's Dry Hills Chardonnay 2021

This wine offers a range of aromas including lemon zest, red apple and brioche. The palate is elegant with a good concentration of fruit flavours, soft texture and a lovely balance of fresh acidity. This is a beautiful and pure expression of chardonnay highlighting the variety’s natural fruit characters unencumbered by new oak.

The bulk of this wine was wild fermented in stainless tanks, although this year we included a larger than normal component of the Mendoza clone fermented in old French barriques (30%). The wine then underwent partial malolactic fermentation, softening the overall acidity. The tank component was lees stirred weekly and all three components spent six months on yeast lees.

Vegan friendly. 13.5% abv.
