Serrat Chardonnay 2018
This wine is 100% from the Mendoza block of Chardonnay, which was planted in 2007.
Barrel fermented with full solids in 500 Litre French oak puncheons and aged on lees for 11 months. Only addition to this wine is SO2. 15% new Oak.
The 2018 is loaded with stone fruits, rock melon, grapefruit and citrus notes. There is an under lying thread of complexity from the natural ferment, full use of solids and barrel fermentation, that will continue to come to the fore as the wine ages.
The palate is detailed and fleshy with layers of pithy texture with a minerally infused intensity. Long, elegant but with restrained power and concentration.
