2014 Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay

2014 Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay

Beechworth, VIC

The Beechworth ‘terroir’ has a distinctive fruit character of pear/peach fruit. The oak has minimal impact by using older French oak and mainly puncheons. The warm year has meant less citrus lift but has bran meal notes from the wild ferment and extended lees contact. The palate is quite rich with zesty acid line through to the finish.

Vinification
Whole bunch pressing, wild ferment in new French oak have come together in spectacular fashion. The wine was fermented in 30% new French oak and the balance older, from a variety of cooperages.
Winemaker Comments
Our Beechworth neighbour Rick Kinzbrunner from Giaconda has had immense success with his Beechworth Chardonnay, highlighting the great quality of this region. Different soils, aspect, clones and age of vines on the Indigo property will lead our Chardonnay in a different direction but with minimum winemaker input, the region still expresses itself. The two previous vintages of this wine have been very successful in wine shows around Australia and we think the 2014 will follow suit. There was a reduced crop due to frost in October, and then a hot summer which resulted in early picking to avoid any heat damage.
Food Pairing
Seafood to light meats.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age. Maybe leave the 2012 and 2013 for a couple more years and enjoy this in its place.
