Stonier Chardonnay, Mornington Peninsula

Stonier Chardonnay, Mornington Peninsula

The Chardonnay grapes were selected from several vineyards centred near Merricks, Balnarring and Merricks North; most of these vineyards are now in excess of 15 years old, with many more than 20 years old. The fermentation takes place in a mixture of French oak barriques, puncheons (10% new) and in tank (30%), with a total maturation period of nearly 10 months. Several batches from the coolest vineyards were allowed to undergo a malolactic fermentation (approximately 30%). The nose shows aromas of lemon, grapefruit and nutmeg spice;
