From the Arlewood Estate, 100% Mendoza clone Chardonnay. Matured in French barriques, 30% new and 70% second use. A mineral accent, fine citric acidity, and compelling fruit weight. Whole bunch pressing and restrained oak handling gives the wine a framework that adds structure and complexity. Fine and long, the palate is elegant yet weighty with leesy characters, vibrant lime fruit, rich phenolics and considerable length. Very low yields in 2007 resulted in a very limited production of Arlewood’s Chardonnay (just 200 cases were made).
