2016 Chardonnay Image

James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion Says..

“The degree of ripeness across Barringwood's wines is exemplary, suggesting an estate on the ascent. This, too, is fully flavoured: a litany of stone fruit notes meander around a core of tangy mineral and oatmeal lees sans any a la mode reduction. This spent 11 months in oak, 18% of which was new, imbuing a creamy tone to it all and a slight cedar edge. Yet despite the pulsating flavour, this is unequivocally cool climate. The acid stream tells it all.”

Wine Making

Made exclusively with free run juice, naturally fermented in French oak barrels (20% new) for 8 months, with lees stirring and partial malolactic fermentation to enhance its textural complexity.
