Edgebaston Chardonnay ‘Tete du Ciel’ 2009

This wine is made from grapes grown on the Clos du Ciel property. It is an example of a site specific wine from a relatively old and low yielding vineyard dedicated to a single variety which makes it interesting. One of a planting selection of 7 clones of Chardonnay, this barrel of juice was fermented with a relatively high percentage of solids to accentuate the flavours of the site. Spontaneous fermentation started in a concrete egg and was followed after 3 months maturation by a further 12 months in a new D&J barrel before fining in barrel and bottled unfiltered. Tasting note: Very taught, mineral, lime and clean, white flower flavours lead to the palate where a fresh, crisp acidity is backed by the oak. Extremely youthful and made to age for a number of years. Drinking at its optimum in 2015.
