Philip Shaw No. 11 Chardonnay

$35.00 inc.GST

Nurturing potential and harnessing elegance to create an expression of chardonnay that is true to its origin.

Palate:

The No 11 Chardonnay is pale straw in colour with a green hue. There are expressive white florals and stone fruits on the nose with bright citrus lift. The palate is powerful yet elegant with savoury layers of toasty oak and cashew nuts that give the wine depth and complexity.
Grapes for this wine have been hand harvested with coarse settling at ambient temperatures overnight. Indigenous yeasts were used for fermentation within French oak barriques, of which 30% were new oak. The wine went through partial malolactic fermentation in spring and battonage occurred during maturation. The wine spent 10 months on fermentation solids.
