2019 Intrinsic Chardonnay
Owen Latta is the man behind the Eastern Peake wines (as well as Latta), which is dedicated to premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Eastern Peake vineyard. Owen has worked his magic yet again with this Chardy, which doesn't see any new oak to enable a superstar solo fruit performance. So vibrant, so lively, you'll be energised with each sip. It's oily, floral, honeyed, buttery, appley, lemony and long. Such a detailed wine, with truckloads of flavour. Fruit was was whole bunched pressed and fermented naturally in wooden barrels, racked after 12 months élevage to tank, full malo, no fining or filtering, bottled 6 months later.
