It's back!! Re-introducing full-structured, big, rounded, gorgeous Chardonnay. New Butterfingers was aged in Le Grand Oak barrels which created a full-bodied and buttery flavour that lingers on. This wine undergoes a very labour-intensive lees stirring method and gains its oak character from the barrels in which it's aged.
This Chardonnay is that player you've known about forever who has not missed a beat. But one day he drops a sitter, a 'classic fumble' that nobody has forgotten about. That period through the 90's where Chardonnays, like Butterfingers, were no longer popular with wine drinkers was the 'classic fumble'. However, now is the time for those drinkers to remember the champion that the wine has always been.
Clear, pale lemon.
Refreshing green apple, mint and pineapple.
Driven by lemon and passionfruit, the acid is clean and gentle, balanced by a slightly grapefruit sweetness at the end of the palate.

Grapes for this single vineyard wine were hand harvested on March 12 from two small blocks on our Uley vineyard at the northern end of the Piccadilly Valley.
Initial juice analysis showed a Baumé of 11.6 degrees, pH 3.09 and titratable acid of 7.7 g/litre. After crushing and gentle pressing, the juice was fermented to dryness at low temperatures to enhance fresh fruit characters.Following stabilisation in tank, the wine was filtered and bottled on 2nd July 2019. Alcohol 12.5%.
Classically varietal and aromatic, the wine displays citrus, pear, guava, elderflower, herbaceous and faint grassy aromas followed by a generous palate with persistent fruit flavours, minerality and crispness and a spicy, tingling finish from the natural grape acidity.
