Wild Yeast Chardonnay is fermented using the native, wild yeasts that occur naturally on the skins of the grapes. Unwooded, it is fermented in underground cement tanks in a slow, volatile process that can take anywhere between 6 to 9 months. This method, although risky, results in incredibly expressive wine with a wisdom that is unattainable in wines made using commercial yeasts.
The 2013 vintage was picked earlier than 2012 and this resulted in a more
elegant wine with lovely pure floral and fruit flavours like melon, white peach,
pear and apricot on the nose. The relatively high acidity keeps the wine fresh.
We believe that it can be enjoyed on its own or with white meat, roast pork,
cream based dishes or a variety of seafood dishes.
