2018 "Styx Gully" Chardonnay

West Cape Howe WinesVintage Description:

Only our very best parcels of Chardonnay are chosen for our Styx Gully. For the 2017 vintage all the fruit was from our Langton vineyard; blocks 25 & 24. 

Winemaking Information:The 2018 vintage was ‘sublime’; we enjoyed perfect conditions over the entire growing season and ripening period with no untoward weather events; no disease pressure, no bird damage…. a dream season that we’d love to be able to dial up every year!
Fruit Source:Mount Barker
Colour:Bright, light gold; very pale straw.
Aroma:Quite peachy with ripe honeydew melon aromas, gorgeous creamy cashew nut characters with some very subtle tropical notes.
Palate:A very subtle but beautifully flavoured Chardonnay that has the most wonderful palate; it is textural, well rounded and still delicate and its gentle acidity gives its good length of flavour. With its melon fruit flavours and crème brulee characters, our 2018 Styx Gully is delightful drinking now and will continue to improve with further bottle age.
Cellar Potential:Beautiful drinking now and over the next 6 years or so.
