    Medhurst Reserve

    2013 Chardonnay

    Pale straw with a very bright straw hue. The 2013 Medhurst reserve chardonnay strongly reflects the generous warmth of the season, with a complex and rich abundance of aromas and flavours. Perhaps one of our strongest chardonnays

    About the Range

    Selected vineyard rows, limited releases.

    The Season

    A great start to the the season in spring saw an even budburst and even run up to flowering. Good fruitset and low disease pressure allowed for even ripening. The heat in January caused rapid acceleration in ripening, meaning it was an early start to vintage, with the first cane-pruned section of chardonnay picked on February 21 and 22, and then the spur section harvest on March 9. The crop level was again incredibly low, yielding only 4.6 tones per hectare.

    Winemaking

    After hand-picking, the chardonnay was immediately whole-bunch pressed and then run as dirty juice to one new 500L French oak hogshead. Wild fermented in barrel developed complex aromas and flavours and lees-stirring weekly enhanced the creamy texture of the wine. Bottled February 12, 2014. Released in July 2017.

    Tasting Notes

    Pale straw with a very bright straw hue. The 2013 Medhurst reserve chardonnay strongly reflects the generous warmth of the season, with a complex and rich abundance of aromas and flavours. Perhaps one of our strongest chardonnays yet, the depth and persistence of flavour, together with the fine and refreshing acidity, guarantees that this Medhurst chardonnay will be a wine that continues to build and get better with up to 10 years of careful cellaring.
