Southbrook Vineyards - 2020 Laundry Chardonnay
Showing a bright lemon color this wine delivers aromas of yellow plums, honeydew melon, wet stone and Bartlett pears. A medium-bodied wine with crisp acidity on the palate blends with tree fruit flavours and leads to a long finish.
Hand harvested from a mixed clonal block of old vines (25 years old) in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub appellation. Whole clusters were gently pressed using a long and slow press cycle. Settled juice was transferred to 300 L French oak barrels for wild yeast and malolactic fermentation. Five chosen barrels (20% new) were blended after 10 months to make this single vineyard wine.
