Flametree SRS Chardonnay 2018

13% abv

Classic grapefruit, white peach and dried pear fruits give way to barrel ferment and sulphide complexities. These sulphides contribute a lovely savoury oyster shell or saline character, giving the wine greater complexity and overall purity.

After overnight cold storage the Chardonnay fruit was whole bunch pressed into French oak puncheons before undergoing full wild yeast fermentation. To achieve a portion with high grape solids they rotated the press after filling. The key to successful wild fermentation is the use of high turbidity juices, minimal sulphur dioxide, low alcohols and juices with good nutrient content. The SRS Chardonnay was barrel fermented in 35% new French puncheons and then aged for 10 months. They then stirred the lees and inoculated 20% of barrels for MLF.
