Chardonnay – Wismer Foxcroft Vineyard


Vintage 2019


Winemaking Notes

A very cool spring was followed by a steady and cool growing season with just enough moisture to keep vines happy.  The cool and steady weather continued into the autumn, allowing us to hang fruit well into the season without losing acidity or freshness. The fruit was amazingly clean, full-flavoured and high in acid with almost no sorting required.  The grapes were whole-cluster pressed on October 10th 2019. Juice was naturally settled, then racked into barrel where fermentation occurred by indigenous yeast and malolactic bacteria.  Once fermentations were completed, the wine remained in French oak barrique and 500-Litre pucheon without stirring of the lees for 13 months.  This wine was lightly filtered and bottled on May 13th, 2021.

Tasting Notes

Combine an exceptional growing season with mature vines and meticulous hand-picking and sorting and you get a truly classic vintage of this wine! While certainly displaying the characteristic chalkiness and weight of the Twenty Mile Bench in Vineland, this wine shows more acid and restraint than in some warmer vintages.  Pineapple, peach, lemon-curd and hazelnut immediately fill the nose, with hints of white flowers and honeysuckle poking through.  The palate immediately brings chalk and mineral, backed by meringue, fresh cream, macintosh apples, cumin and roasted almonds. Texture and weight are phenomenal and are balanced by unusually good acidity leading to an incredibly long finish. Drink with lemon roasted chicken, semi-soft cheese, and freshly baked bread. It will age well for the next 5-8 years.
