Another favourite of the Scott family, this wine boasts aromas of citrus, ripe white peach, nuts and toasty oak. The tightly structured minerality is rounded off with subtle hints of delicious honeycomb. Great on its own but a very food-friendly wine.
For the Allan Scott Base Chardonnay 2017, each batch of selected grapes was harvested in the cool of the morning and pressed so the juice settled at cool temperatures. This was followed by barrel fermentation using wild yeasts on solids in French oak at cool temperatures.
When the alcoholic fermentation is near completion the wine is allowed to go through a full malolactic fermentation and then a further maturation in barrels with regular lees stirring.
The average price per bottle is only available in a case of 6.
