This year’s Unorthodox Chardonnay is produced from estate grown Chardonnay Musque grapes.
The Chardonnay Musque was harvested in three different pickings. Each picking saw various amounts of skin contact in the press. The juice was then settled, racked and inoculated in a stainless steel tank. The tank fermented below 15°C for 20 days. The wine then aged for 6 months before being filtered and bottled.
