Crittenden Estate Kangerong Chardonnay 2020


It was a tough year in many ways but eventually a coolish long finish to what had been a season of one disaster after another, resulting in pleasing low acid wines with good potential. Whole bunch pressed to barriques and puncheons with wild yeast fermentation and a small amount of lees stirring, the result is impressive with a savoury peachy stone fruit and edgy lemon zest creating a fragrant aroma. There’s just the faintest hint of struck match minerality adding complexity to the finish.
