Eight at the Gate Family Selection Chardonnay 2022


From Wrattonbully fruit, only free run juice is used here, in a mix of new and older French oak barrels, with native yeasts. The wine spent twelve months in those barrels, with regular batonnage. A gleaming pale gold hue, there is depth and complexity here. Good oak integration with notes of figs, peaches, cashews, stonefruit and a splash of citrus. Seamless with a long finish, good balance throughout and a flick of lime-like acidity. Will drink well over the next three to four years.
