Limited Release Chardonnay 2023

Brown Brothers

Minimum order of 1 case or 6 bottles (Mixed or straight)

A refined wine crafted from the scenic vineyard of Banksdale at the top of the King Valley, VIC. Premium parcels of fruit have been selected, vinified in the Kindergarten winery and barrel fermented, gracefully maturing for 8 months in French oak.

A Chardonnay of many flavours, revealing creaminess that imparts a rich palate texture. These diverse notes are bound together with natural acidity from this cooler vintage. 

Perfect to enjoy now or cellar for 3-5 years for further complexity.

Food Pairings

The Limited Release Chardonnay is so fresh and crisp that it is a fine drink on its own. This wine's attractive flavours would make it a suitable partner to firm,fleshed fish like Blue Grenadier or Snapper, or a risotto of smoked trout, capers and wild mushrooms. Or try it with a ripe camembert and segments of crunchy green apple.

Different winemaking techniques have added many complexities to the nose and palate of this elegant chardonnay. A component was fermented with “wild” or natural yeast to increase the texture and complexity of the wine. The wine was barrel fermented and spent 8 months in oak, of which 21% was new and 32% one year old. Some barrel stirring was used to mix the yeast lees through the wine, which helped build weight.
