Moss Wood Chardonnay

Moss Wood Chardonnay

Margaret River, Western Australia

Those with an interest in history will know that Chardonnay has been part of the Margaret River winemaking landscape since the 1980 vintage. The resulting wine exhibits rich fruit flavours – complexity – a blending of the flavors of Chardonnay fruit, yeast characters from the fermentation process, smokey, spicy characters of new oak. Burgundian influences apply here, with ageing on lees for 18 months in French barriques, without stirring, with a significant proportion undergoing malolactic fermentation. All Chardonnay batches are barrel fermented in 50% French oak.
