2012 'Bergman' Chardonnay

Variety: Chardonnay
Vintage: 2012
Volume: 750 ml

Immediately after harvest, the grapes were pressed, and the juice was immediately chilled. Following settling the juice was racked into predominantly French oak, with some American oak, for fermentation and subsequent aging on its lees.

Tasting Note:
The Ingrid Bergman rose is a magnificent red, and the Chardonnay takes its name from this rose, which is planted adjacent the winery and vineyard. A vibrant, golden straw colour. The 2012 Bergman Chardonnay was totally barrel fermented in seasoned oak barrels - there was a small portion which went through malolactic fermentation. Stone fruit notes are evident on the bouquet. Ripe peach, butterscotch and oak are evident on the palate. Classically made, the Bergman Chardonnay is perfect for any occasion.
