Glen Carlou Chardonnay Reserve 2005

These grapes are from a single vineyard, first used for our CWG Reserve in 2004. Barrel fermented and matured in 100% new 225 litre French oak. Natural yeast fermentation and spontaneous malolactic allowed for complexity. 18 months ageing sur lie. Bottled with minimal filtration. Tasting Note: A rich, opulent wine. Cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon spice and orange peel on the nose. Palate crisp and tight with layer upon layer of spice, vanilla and citrus. Long finish in the mouth shows promise of age ability.

Winemaker: David Finlayson
