Magpie Estate 'The Next Big Thing'

Chardonnay, 2017

Australia White

Barossa Valley 75cl

Small batches of Chardonnay are picked and pressed through a tank press with some skin contact. 25% is fermented in French puncheons and American hogsheads for 6 months, aged on lees then blended with the 75% unoaked juice, settled and bottled. Into the main Barossa blend a small component of Eden Valley Chardonnay is blended and the whole sees a tiny bit of secondary use oak for some fine structure.
Lemon and stone fruit, a hint of struck match and a touch of creamy oak on the nose.
Weighty on the palate ripe stone fruit, some butterscotch leesy notes and integrated oak leading to spice with good acidity on a long finish. Unashamedly Chardonnay! Good weight and texture but crucially fresh.
