Serrat Chardonnay 2019
This wine is 100% from the Mendoza block of Chardonnay, which was planted in 2007.
Barrel fermented with full solids in a single new 600L and the remaining in 500 Litre French oak puncheons and aged on lees for 11 months. Only addition to this wine is SO2. 20% new Oak.
The 2019 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 2019 is remarkable tightly focused for a warmer than average vintage, it is mineral and coiled and has great concentration, it will keep for a very long time and continue to develop and build in texture as it ages.
