Lange Estate Providence Road Chardonnay 2023


Chardonnay from the Frankland River region in the West, this is from the famous Gin Gin clone from Block 7 at the estate. Pressed into a range of French oak – puncheons, hogsheads and barrels, 20% of which were new – fermentation was by wild yeast with occasional lees stirring. A very pale lemon hue and a most appealing nose, some nuts, stonefruits, ginger, oatmeal and citrus to be found here. There is early complexity evident with a touch of well integrated oak. A wine of balance, poise and very good intensity, there is a fine line of seabreeze acidity carried by excellent length. Enjoy any time over the next five to six years.
