2021 Domenica Chardonnay
Region: Beechworth, VIC
Winemaker: Peter Graham
Established Date: 2012
Grown on a south facing slope, the fruit is hand picked lightly crushed, and basket pressed. The juice is then transferred to barriques awaiting the start of fermentation. This occurs naturally, when it is ready, and takes as long as it takes.
Well balanced fruit will contain everything required to ferment to dryness. New oak is used judiciously. The wine is matured in its original barrel, on yeast lees for around 18 months before blending to tank, where it is naturally fined, then bottled unfiltered under screwcap closure.
Sommelier’s Recommendation This is not your run of the mill Chardonnay. Texture, freshness and vibrancy is the key to this wine. A natural wine in all the senses except it is clean as a whistle. Great fruit converted to great wine with a deft touch of oak for support. A chardonnay that is at the forefront of Australia’s new wave of Chardonnay for the next generation.
