The nose shows lifted citrus with a slight hint of oak, the palate is weighted and generous and has the texture and complexities associated with time on lees.
The grapes for the Moon Mountain Chardonnay are sourced from both our own vineyards and a number of high-end vineyards around the Hunter Valley. Fermentation of the juice began in stainless steel tanks before the partially fermented juice was transferred to new, two and three-year-old French oak barriques (225L) and puncheons (500L). After fermentation, the wine received some lees stirring to enhance the palate structure and texture. No malolactic fermentation used.
