Description

The classic Chardonnay generosity and richness combine with a scintillating fineness; a crackle and pop of aroma, flavour and flintiness that takes you straight to Langi. All of these elements will see this wine continue to develop beautifully over the coming years in the cellar as well.

Growing Conditions
In 2015, fruit on the vine looked perfect at the time of harvesting for Blanc de Blancs, and natural acidity levels were unbelievably ideal. The winemaking team decided to leave out a few rows to develop greater flavour intensity and for the fruit to come in to optimum balance for table wine. One week later, the remaining rows were hand-harvested to create one of the few Chardonnay’s ever made at Langi.

Winemaking Notes
Whole bunches were bucketed straight in to the basket press and pressed to barrel for fermentation; full solids and natural yeast. One barrel was coaxed through MLF to iron out some of the lip-smacking acidity. The wine rested on lees for 14 months with intermittent stirring - a process that helped us navigate through the whims and twists of this wine’s maturation journey. There were moments this wine appeared charmingly bizarre indeed, and other moments where it presented with sheer magnificence. The longer we left it in barrel, the better the wine became, and the smaller the swings of variation. Just after Christmas, the wine really began to come together and its extended time in barrel allowed it to settle to great clarity – the winemakers decided not to filter it…just rack it straight to bottle. Everything was there, and taking anything way didn’t make sense.

Medium to full yellow colour, which seems a trifle advanced, until the domineering oak is smelled. It is really very oaky. The palate is however full-bodied and richly flavoured. There's a honeyed flavour and a saltiness that works together with the elevated acidity to give a very appealing mineral impression. The acidity really zings throughout the palate and aftertaste. It calls for food. Drink 2018 to 2025
