Every year we give our interns some fruit to do whatever they want with over harvest. Sometimes it is a humorous and hard-won learning experience, and sometimes we bottle it exclusively in magnums. A bit of skin contact and a whole bunch of attitude, this Chardonnay was lovingly nurtured by Mitch and Phil. From twice daily hand plunging, to late night basket pressing and barrelling by gravity, no two men have cared more about success since Shooter himself.
The origin being Phil and Mitch at harvest opting to go the long way in pressing this parcel of chardonnay via the basket press. White stone fruits, with pith, gentle green crushed herbs of fennel, basil and thyme. The palate is demanding with robust structure and loads within. Not heavy, but textural and nicely weighted.
Fermented on skins for 10 days before basket pressing to barrel Small old oak for 8 months
