2019 Crittenden Estate Cri de Coeur Chardonnay
The 2018 vintage experienced favourable mild to warm weather which allowed fruit to achieve optimal flavour ripeness.
This wine was whole bunch pressed with a wild yeast ferment and spent 11 months in French oak barriques (50% new). It was filtered and bottled Feb 2018 (16 months bottle age prior to release).
Subtle florals and citrus lead to white stone fruit. Pure fruited and finessed with acid steering the palate. A beautiful, elegant wine.
