This range was created in respect of the brave crewman that endured the elements in the half barrel lookout at the top of the ship’s mast.  The Barrelman Chardonnay is a lively wine that displays lovely stone fruit aromas with a hint of melon. The palate displays flavours of white peach and nectarine, accompanied by a touch of subtle oak. 


Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
This fruit driven palate is complex and smooth with a nicely balanced acid structure. It displays primary fruit characters of white peach and nectarine accompanied by creamy characters from lees maturation. The finish is long with fine lingering fruit flavours.
Production
Harvested in the cool of the night to maintain freshness the Chardonnay was delivered to the winery and crushed and pressed immediately. The juice was then allowed to settle before being racked maintaining a moderate level of solids for fermentation. Once fermentation was complete the wine was 5 months to add texture and creaminess to the wine. The wine was then blended, lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
