Caves Road Chardonnay, Margaret River

Caves Road Chardonnay, Margaret River

hardonnay grapes from vineyards located in the south of the Margaret River region in the sub-region of Karridale are employed; many face south and are cooled by sea breezes from the Southern Ocean. The hand-picked fruit is whole bunch pressed and fermented with natural yeasts, prior to being aged in a mixture of new and one-year-old French oak barrels. The wine does not undergo a malolactic fermentation, to maintain the freshness acquired from the long ripening period. It displays aromas of lemon, white peach and hints of tropical fruit; the palate has persistent flavours with a balancing freshness and a touch of oak spice.
