2021 Oakdene Liz's Chardonnay
Pale straw with a green hue.
Complex bouquet, with notes of dried apple, peach, and lemon citrus with barrel ferment characters.
Bright and vibrant, with a generous core of briny acidity and citrus crunch. Stone fruit, oatmeal and lemon curd filling the palate, with toasty oak and cedar notes contributing texture and balance.
Hand harvested Chardonnay was pressed and transferred to barrel for fermentation using wild yeast. Post ferment lees stirring was conducted on a fortnightly basis. The wine underwent partial (10%) malolactic fermentation, and was matured in French oak barriques (30% new) for 12 months prior to bottling in February 2022.
