Chardonnay and Savagnin

Organic

South Australia, Australia

75% Chardonnay, 25% Savagnin. Fruit comes from the very sandy soils of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Whole-cluster pressed, some co-fermentation, fermented to nearly dry in stainless steel, then moved to various old barrels for a rest. On barrels for this cuvée, Mark says, “225, 300 and 500L. If I had my way the barrels would be BIGGGGER, but we work with what we got.” Unfined, unfiltered, no added SO2. This is an extraordinary wine that approximates the prettiest versions of ouillé styles of whites in the Jura—Céline Gormally of Les Dolomies is one of Mark and Alicia’s favorite winemakers; you can see the reference here.
