Eastern Peake Intrinsic Chardonnay 2020

Where - Ballarat, Victoria
What - Chardonnay
Body - Medium
Style - Contemplate

Cropping levels were very low in the Chardonnay due to a poor fruit set from wind & rain at flowering. Whole bunched pressed fermented naturally in 300L hogs heads & 228L barriques, racked after 12 months élevage to tank, always full malo, no fining or filtering, bottled 6 months later from racking. A small amount of sulphur post malo & pre bottling. Vintage 2020 was a wild ride from climatic conditions out of our control, the wine is up there as one of the greats a perfect pitch & balance from our terroir. - EP
