Description

The fruit was lightly whole bunch pressed and the juice fermented in American oak barrels, forty-three percent of which were new, using selected yeast strains. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, followed by ten months of aging on yeast lees with regular stirring. Only the very best barrels were selected for the Omaka Reserve Chardonnay.

Fragrant ripe peach, toasted spice and subtle vanilla notes. Concentrated, round and full with flavours of ripe charred stone fruit, pink grapefruit and a smoky oak character that leads to a long and lingering finish. Drinking beautifully now, this wine will continue to evolve and reward over the next five to ten years with careful cellaring. 94/100 - The Real Review
