2021 GOLDMAN “BLUEBONE” CHARDONNAY
Vineyard: Greenacres, Merriang South
Region: Alpine Valleys
Harvested: February 2021
Volume Made: 63 Dozen
Winemaker: Jo Marsh and Glenn James
Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and filled directly to barrel with full solids. Fermented with
indigenous yeast in barrel and allowed partial malolactic fermentation. Once sulphured, the wine
was matured in French barriques (approximately 40% new oak) on full solids with minimal stirring
for a further 9 months before blending, clarification and bottling in January 2022.
Attractive oak forefront and immersed with nougat and spice, the nose is complex and offers aromas
of underlying white peach. The palate displays the same white stone fruit, teamed with a pleasing
creamy texture owed to time spent on lees. The palate is tied together neatly with an attractive
mineral edge to finish.
