Chardonnay By Farr Three Oaks Vineyard 2016
Sangreal is consistently made with 60 to 70 per cent whole bunch and aged in new oak. It is fermented in a five-tonne oak barrel with an open-top fermenter, and cold soaked for four days before a natural fermentation of seven to nine days. Once the cap falls, the tank is pressed. The wine is racked only once after malolactic fermentation, then sulphured and bottled, the entire process taking a total of 18 months. The wine is unfined and unfiltered in order to retain its natural flavour and bouquet. Sangreal is the most seamless and perfumed of the three single-vineyard pinots.
Medium to full ruby colour with a purple tinge, the bouquet tremendously complex and very foresty with strong stalky nuances. Very good flavour and weight, generous fine-grained tannins and good length. It's very floral and multi-layered. A superb and delicious pinot.
