Church Road Chardonnay Grand Reserve 750ml
Church road grand reserve wines are produced only in great vintages. The very best low-cropping vineyard blocks are targeted for selective hand-harvesting to yield wines with the greatest possible flavour, depth and concentration. In the winery these wines are made using small batch, traditional winemaking techniques that emphasise texture, structure and subtle complexity, while still letting the fruit shine through. One of the most challenging and exciting wine styles to produce.\r\nHand-harvested fruit from our two best chardonnay vineyards is whole-bunch pressed and the juice run directly to barrel with no prior clarification step. Once in barrel the juice is simply left to undergo a natural, wild fermentation process and a subsequent 11 month maturation period. The result is a powerful yet elegant, age-worthy and complex chardonnay of great depth and character.
