Bress Silver Label Macedon Chardonnay 2015
Regular price $27.00
We love Macedon Chardonnay for Macedon is one of Australia's coolest grape growing regions and can produce Chardonnay of superb purity and focus. Sourced from one of Macedon’s coolest sites, 650m above sea level. The vineyard is maintained with Biodynamic practices.
The fruit was picked according to the moon phase and fermented using naturally occurring yeasts from their vineyards, and a high percentage of juice solids. The wine receives little if any filtration. It does not undergo cold stabilization to remove potassium bitartrate (wine diamonds), so it may produce harmless crystalline deposits. Minimal oak treatment, old-oak, and the barrels are high quality 300L Hogsheads from Marsannay, Dargaud et Jaegle and Siruge.
The result is pristine fruit intensity, delicate spiciness, excellent natural acidity and a dry yet sprightly finish.
Satisfying with shelfish and goats cheese. The team at Bress reckon it's essential next time you have fish and chips (especially when they’re wrapped in paper!).
