Hollick Bond Road Chardonnay

by Hollick

Hollick Bond Road Chardonnay is fermented in French oak hogsheads, where it remained on its yeast lees for six months. It has a complex palate of fresh, vibrant green apple, pear, melon and nectarine primary fruit flavours. A small portion of the wine is encouraged to undergo malo-lactic fermentation, which adds softness to the mouth-feel and a slight buttery note to the nose and palate. A richly textured wine with great balance in the mouth and persistence on the finish.

Coonawarra has one of the longest growing seasons for Chardonnay in the world, allowing the fruit for the Hollick Bond Road to develop and ripen slowly, with sufficient natural acidity for palate balance.

The finest parcels of fruit from the vineyard adjacent to Bond Road on the Wilgha property in Coonawarra were selected for inclusion in the Hollick Bond Road Coonawarra Chardonnay. The grapes were harvested in the cool of the dawn so that the fruit was delivered to the winery in pristine condition, and gentle pressing ensured that only the highest quality, free run juice made it to fermentation.
