Vitae Chardonnay 2016
This Chardonnay is made entirely from fruit grown in a single elevated vineyard at Mt Alexander in the Harcourt Valley near Bendigo. The Chardonnay grapes were harvested in the cool of the morning to retain the pure varietal characters and crisp, natural acidity. The juice was gently pressed off and fermented in barrel. Stirring of the lees added complexity to the wine and once all the elements of the wine were beautifully integrated, the wine was blended, fined, filtered and bottled.
