FERGUSON VALLEY WESTERN AUSTRALIA
2017 'Rock of Solitude' Chardonay
SILVER MEDAL LONDON INTERNATIONAL WINE SHOW
A Chardonnay bringing together four classic Burgundian clones
A generous palate featuring stone fruit and pear
Time on lees has resulted in a velverty texture, which is well balanced by fresh acidity
Put simply a very elegant and classic Chardonnay
The Rock of Solitude is a special place in our vineyard, a single flat rock facing west, overlooking Geographe Bay.
In the quiet of the early morning and evening this is the perfect place to seek seclusion and regain energy from the earth.
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were machine-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The ferments were pumped over twice a day.
Postalcoholic fermentation, it was pressed to tank before racking off to barrel for malo-lactic fermentation and maturation.
The wine was then blended together, fined, filtered and bottled.
