Bleeding Heart Chardonnay 2018
Careful vine management is always required but particularly in 2018 as early November frosts resulted in a reduction in yield across much of South Australia. The timing and result was good from a ripening perspective and with consistent temperatures in the subsequent few months the fruit that remained developed handsomely with great bright flavours and fine, fresh acidity.
The nose expresses stone fruit, lemon and apple; while the palate is elegant and fresh. The sheltered aspect of the vineyard combined with a higher altitude ensures the retention of natural acidity in the harvested fruit.
