Temple Bruer Preservative Free Chardonnay 2021

  • Vegan Suitable
  • No Added Preservative
  • Certified Organic

Pale straw in colour, the nose entices with citrus, pear and some tropical notes, pineapple perhaps. The palate is fresh with bright acid and a slightly viscous texture (from the malo fermentation) revealing stonefruit flavours with a hint of cashew nut and vanilla. It finishes dry with a gentle grip that cleanses your palate. Great drinking.

Vineyard

The Chardonnay was sourced from Barmara in the Riverland where the vines are 30 years old. The vineyard is certified Organic and Biodynamic and has mallee soils which consist of deep sand over lime and clay. The 2021 vintage and growing season was very cool and dry, which led to slower ripening over the season. Natural acidity, concentrated fruit flavour and fine tannins were seen over all of Temple Bruer vineyards and regions. Picking began in late January and finished in late April. Yields and quality were great due to a wet winter across our vineyards followed with a cooler but also dry summer which led to low disease pressure and even and long ripening periods.

Winemaking

The Chardonnay was picked very early morning in mid-February at 11 Baume and a pH of 3.30. While the grapes were cool, they were quickly crushed, pressed and settled overnight before racking the next morning and inoculating with yeast. This Chardonnay fermented for 3 weeks over cool temperatures of 14C. It finished Malolactic fermentation and had some French oak contact for a short period of time before it was cold and heat stabilised and bottled in mid-April 2021. No sulphur dioxide was used during the making of this wine.

HAVE IT WITH: Steamed or grilled fish with spring vegetables.
