A Luxurious Handpicked Whole Bunch Barrel Fermented Chardonnay

The Silk Trilogy Chardonnay is an elegant beautifully made white with more than a touch of class. A strictly limited production of 1000 bottles means that this wine is rarely available outside the domaine.

Terroir:
Light clay-limestone

Vinification:
Hand harvest. Gentle pneumatic pressing of whole bunches. Cold settling, gentle racking to barrel for alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature with natural and selected yeasts. No malolactic fermentation.

Ageing
In French oak barrels (50% new 50% 1 year) for 9 months with periodic stirring on lees.

Tasting Notes
The colour is pale yellow/straw. Citrus notes dominate the bouquet and integrate well with hints of tropical fruit and cedar and background nutty notes. On the palate riper fruit flavours feature. A rich mid palate is balanced by firm acidity that adds freshness, stability and length to the palate. Toasty cedar notes and a hint of biscuit linger with the support of a firm but balanced acidity.
