Cathedral Cellar Chardonnay 2022
The juice was fermented with a combination of yeast strains – to enhance complexity, fruit flavor and elegance 75% was added commercial and 25% was indigenous. No malolactic fermentation was permitted to preserve maximum varietal and fruit expression. The wine was left on extended lees contact for 270 days after fermentation and stirred regularly during this period.
Showing a prominent nose of peach, and mango with secondary aromas of orange blossom, this creamy textured palate shows hints of vanilla, pineapple & oak, following through with a fresh minerality on the palate.
Enjoy this wine on its own. It can also be successfully paired with dishes like
roast chicken and mushroom risotto.
