Innocent Bystander Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2016
Winery Notes: A “vintage of mixed fortunes”, with very low yields, but overall a quality of a very high standard. Large healthy canopies and low crops meant that vintage kicked off early. The slowing in maturity gave the fruit ripe seeds, and concentrated and rich flavours.
Vinification:100% hand picked fruit. Whole bunch pressed with free run and pressings portions kept separate. Indigenous fermentation in new and seasoned French barriques and puncheons. Barrels were lees stirred monthly until winter. No malolactic fermentation, to retain a fresh, natural acidity. Time in oak: 9 months (French oak).
