Mendoza clone Chardonnay from Block 6 was whole bunch pressed, settled overnight and flowed by gravity to barrel in the underground cellar.
Fermentation with indigenous yeasts in seasoned French oak (no new oak) was followed by a long and complete malolactic over the spring and summer.
After 16 months in barrel the wine was racked to tank for bottling in early-September 2020. The wine was not fined or filtered.
Lemon blossom, delicate peach and flaky sea salt invite and intrigue. Refined stone fruit flavours allow the minerality to infuse across a broader and richer palate than is seen in the Block 2. Initial richness is tempered by a mouth-watering acidity that drives the finish. A bolder expression from the north facing slope and higher elevation of Block 6.
