Bookshelf comment

The intent behind this Limestone Block Chardonnay is to deliver a pure, transparent expression of variety, vineyard and vintage. In an attempt to do this, we hand pick and gently whole bunch press the grapes with no additions. The juice is delivered directly from the press tray to puncheons without settling, where it slowly ferments using ambient yeast. Over a period of about three months, the juice ferments and undergoes malolactic fermentation naturally. The lees are never stirred, and no new oak is used in order to allow the true character of our Limestone Block to reveal itself. Lemon custard, fresh baked bread, hazelnut and green apple notes mingle on the nose. The palate mirrors the nose, but is deceptively rich and concentrated, alluding to the warmer vintage and low vineyard yields. The acidic backbone and mineral character of the vineyard comes through delivering a clean, precise finish.
