Gartelmann 2017 'Lisa' Reserve Chardonnay

Ferment the Orange Wine Centre & Wine Store


This product is currently sold out

Barrel fermented in new and one year old 500 litre puncheons and 300 litre hogsheads to achieve the more subtle oak characters. Kept in oak for ten months with monthly lees stirring. Freshness and vitality was preserved by inhibiting malolactic fermentation. 
This cold climate chardonnay is more subtle, less blowsy, quietly intense. Right now this Reserve chardonnay is elegant, subdued, exhibiting delightful citrus and flinty characters with a good dash of excellent French oak to add the vanilla and toasty bouquet we expect.  Its full aroma though is still hiding behind a respectful alcohol content of 13%, and some bracing acid. 
Drink from 2018 or cellar until 2025+.
