Tasting Notes for Paxton NOW Preservative Free Chardonnay 2021 from the Winery
Native finger lime, peach candy, dried mango with a hint of rosemary bloom. Cool ripening weather has lead to a nervy acidity, leading this wine to pair beautifully with food. Lively and energetic like front row at a Queen concert, this wine will intrigue you from the start to its honey-glazed, savoury finish
Vintage 2021: 2021 was one of those dream vintages that don’t come along every year; cool, refreshing nights and dreamy, sun-kissed days without any extended stretches of intense heat. After a warmer than usual November there were only four days above 40 degrees. It was mainly dry throughout the ripening season with the odd spattering of just enough rain to keep the grapes beautifully plump, juicy and full of bright fruit flavours and time to dry out in between so disease pressure was low. The gentle undulation between these varying temperatures and perfectly healthy canopies allowed us to really ponder picking times, spending plenty of time out in the vineyard tasting grapes getting the timing of picking just right. The generous harvest has rewarded us with delightfully delicate fruit and varietal characters, with each variety singing its own tune. Natural acids are in perfect balance and the smooth, sensuous tannins completed by an epic energetic vibration that we can’t wait to share with you
Vinification: Selector harvested in the cool of the night once the grapes have reached optimum sugar and flavour equilibrium. Whole berry pressed and fermented between 15oc-18oc. Post primary fermentation, the wine is left on fine lees throughout and after malolactic fermentation, stirred weekly to increase mouthfeel and creaminess and protect the wine from oxidation. The wine is bottled after only a couple of months ageing in stainless steel tanks to preserve the beautiful fruit flavours.
