Chardonnay lovers look alive, especially those of you who’ve been craving that gorgeous, lush, richer style. We’ve heard your cries for more and we’ve delivered. For the box-tickers, grab your pens and prepare yourselves, for this is a fresh one! After a few vintages in Hibernation we have come back with a vengeance. This chardy is the pinnacle of Belgravia’s winemaking endeavors. 

Handpicked parcels of Chardonnay from one of the greatest sites in the region were whole bunch pressed straight into new and 1 year old French Oak Barriques and Puncheons for natural fermentation. Matured for 12 months on skins, racked and lightly filtered for bottling. this wine is a super example of a complex Margaret River Chardonnay.

 

 

THE CHARDONNAY STYLE

 

Chardonnay is the most diverse wine grape and most planted wine grape in the world. It was born in the Burgundy region of France. It's either oak aged or unoaked and is used for everything from rich Orange Chardonnay to a zesty and light Blanc de Blanc Sparkling wine. The beauty with this variety is that no two places that grow the variety produce the same wine. Gone are the days of an oak bombed styled Chardonnay.
