It may only be Tuesday, but I have something super happy for you.
This wine is whole brunch pressed and spent 24 hours naturally fermenting before being going into matured oak barriques (approx 10% new) where it stayed for 8 months with a little bit of lees stirring.
It got its name because: “While it sat there peacefully maturing away in barrel it narrowly escaped the Cudlee Creek bushfires just down the road. This is a lucky and very happy chardonnay.”
I’d definitely buy this $35 Chardy again.
In the glass it’s a pale yellow with juicy fresh pears, lychee and a hint of vanilla rising from the glass. It’s bright and summery yet shows complexity. Nice and rounded with a gorgeous flow to it. One bottle is definitely not enough!
