2019 Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay

2019 Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay

Beechworth, VIC

The 2019 is a little fuller in weight than previous vintages showing the warmer summer, but still has a lovely pale yellow/green colour. Fermented in 100% French oak, mostly 500L puncheons, the warm year has meant less citrus lift but has bran meal and toast notes from the wild ferment and extended lees contact. The crisp acidity and low alcohol makes for quite a zesty mouth feel. Grapefruit pith and rock melon carry through for a long 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
The Indigo property has different soils, aspect, clones and vine age, but it is another great example of what this region can do for Chardonnay. We have minimum winemaker input to let the regional characteristics shine through. Sufficient winter rainfall in 2018 saw the vines off to a good budburst and crop set, then an unseasonable dump of 180mm of rain in 24 hours left us thinking we were in the Hunter. A very hot January followed which led to harvest commencing on the 17/2 under clear blue skies.
Food Pairing
Seafood and light meats.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
