Rags to Riches Chardonnay 2021
Brilliant pale straw.
Lifted tropical fruits, grapefruit, and citrus with layers of toasty oak.
An elegant yet complex flavours of lemon meringue, stone fruit and citrus are carried long by toasty oak tannins and natural acidity.
A mild 2020 spring with reasonable rainfall provided excellent growing conditions. A wet November followed by a warm and dry December and January set the vines for up for a regular season. However wet and humid conditions in February created an unusual vintage with extreme weather. As a result, the 2021 vintage required extra work and attention to detail in the vineyard. The final wines show incredible flavour at lower Baume’s with bright natural acidity. Great fruit purity and varietal expression.
