Description

Chardonnay was planted at Mount Langi Ghiran in 1985 on the most eastern face of the property. This vine material is old, and its origins are largely unknown and somewhat mysterious. This fruit typically produces Mount Langi Ghiran Blanc de Blancs sparkling; a reflection of its dazzling natural acidity and early flavour development. Now over 30 years old, these chardonnay vines are delivering beautiful fruit with great drive and generosity of flavour, with a tension that keeps building amidst the expanding fruit and subtle “Langi” spice.

Growing Conditions
In 2017 the vintage conditions were optimal and our Chardonnay fruit presented vast potential, with alluring acidity and deep flavour intensity. Ten days after harvesting for our Blanc de Blancs, the remaining Chardonnay grapes were hand picked to craft our second Spinoff Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes

Colour
Yellow
Nose
The bouquet displays lemon curd, white/orange blossom with subtly spiced tones of clove, nutmeg and roasted almonds.
Palate
Intense and captivating palate, flowing seamlessly with such depth and concentration of flavour. Scintillating, natural acidity drives the wine creating boundless length and persistence, balanced by unobtrusive French oak and wonderful textural elements; think crème brûlée. All of these elements will see this wine continue to develop beautifully over the coming years in the cellar.

Winemaking Notes
Pristine whole bunches were gently loaded into our press and pressed to barrel for fermentation; full solids, partial wild fermentation and some malolactic fermentation to bring into balance the austerity of the acid. The wine rested on lees in French oak for 8 months with intermittent stirring –a process that helped the winemakers navigate through the wines maturation journey, before pinpointing the precise time to blend for bottling. Gravity racked without fining or filtration.
