Lightfoot & Sons Myrtle Point Chardonnay 2020 vintage is a fresh, bright, modern Chardonnay. Citrus, white Peach and melon layered with subtle complexity gained from barrel fermentation and maturation. The grapes for this wine were picked and immediately pressed, with the juice going directly to barrel (no juice settling or fining prior to ferment). Only the free run juice and the light pressings are used for this wine. Ferments were carried out using a mixture of wild and cultivated yeast strains, in French Oak barrels. Of these barrels approximately 15% are new with a mixture of larger format oak in Hogs Heads and Puncheons. Lees stirring was undertaken in the following months to increase complexity. A small percentage (10%) of the barrel ferments went through a malolactic fermentation. New barrels used in the blend came from the coopers Damy, Sirugue, and St Martin – with wood sourced from the Allier, Vosges and Jupille forests. Made exclusively from fruit grown at the Myrtle Point Vineyard in the coastal Gippsland Lakes District, Victoria. Located between the Great Dividing Range and Bass Straight, the Gippsland Lakes District enjoys a cool, semi-maritime climate. The Myrtle Point Vineyard is located high on a limestone bluff above the Mitchell River. The soil structure of the vineyard is classic Terra Rosa over Limestone which is highly unusual in Gippsland.
