Product Description

Massoni Chardonnay

Vintage: Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

Region: Mornington Peninsula 100%

The Mornington Peninsula is renowned for producing elegant, refined Chardonnay. Such wines often reflect Chablis more than Burgundy with their crisp natural acidity and restraint. The Massoni style is more robust than most with ripe fruit and powerful palate presence. Our Chardonnays are made to improve with careful cellaring.

Composition: Chardonnay 100%

Colour Light to medium straw in colour with intensity and depth.

Aroma Aromas of lemon curd, grapefruit, honey and cashew nuts.

Palate A return to the riper Massoni style after the elegant and restrained 2011 release. A generous and creamy entry with great richness and a smooth, complete mid-palate. A gentle touch of phenolics on the finish adds interest.

Cellar This wine will benefit from cellaring for 2-4 years from bottling.

Harvest date: 10 March

Vintage conditions:  The 2011-12 growing season was mild and relatively dry apart from some useful lateseason rain. After two wet years, the vines were healthy and fruit-set was good although berries were smaller than normal. Late January and February were cooler than expected so harvest was slightly later than we had anticipated.

Winemaking Hand-picked and brought to the winery for immediate processing. Whole-bunch pressed with the juice settled for a short period before fermentation with wild yeast in small oak barrels, 30% of which were new. After fermentation, 15% of the barrels went through malo-lactic fermentation. The wine was blended in March 2013 and allowed to integrate in tank before bottling in June.

Alcohol: 13.0%                        
pH: 3.34                       
T/A : 6.8 g/L
