2017 Hughes and Hughes Chardonnay
h&h Chardonnay 2017
Southern Tas Chardonnay
Fruit sourced from the Derwent and Huon Valleys. It is 100% barrel fermented in new and seasoned oak with Pinot Alba yeast. It was matured for four months on lees while undergoing MLF. A limited volume of only 2496 bottles were produced without fining.
The finished wine has ripe acidity and is balanced by subtle oak and lees texture. There’s grapefruit and funk, lemon and cedar. Don’t be fooled by the MLF, acid is at the centre of this wine, bound by earthy aromas and mouth filling textures. Time in the cellar will see this wine flesh out even further.
