Our White Gold is an elegant Chardonnay with subtle fruit tones. It features lovely integrated tones of ripe pineapple, juicy citrus, roasted peanuts. On the palate it is rich, buttery and smooth.
White Gold is 100% Chardonnay and is made with particular attention to detail to bring out the best of the flavours of the grapes. Half of the wine was aged 6 months in new French oak, the other in Stainless steel. The wine went through a partial malolactic fermentation (about 55%) to achieve the rich buttery texture and mellow flavours. The grapes were sourced from the Sundial vineyard (previously Black Sage Vineyard) just south of Oliver. The grapes were picked on Oct 1st and Oct 2nd 2010 after a cool and wet September. 2/3 consisted of Chardonnay clone 76 and 1/3 of clone 96. After bottling, the wine was aged further for another 12 months prior to release.
Wine is peaking and should be consumed soon
