Stargazer Chardonnay 2022
This is the second vintage that Sam has been able to utilise fruit from her Palisander Vineyard in the Coal River, with the remaining fruit sourced from Bernard Brain's vineyard at Ouse in the Derwent Valley. A mix of Dijon clones on their own roots planted on dermosol on Jerassic dolerite. Palisander planted in 2017 whereas Brain's vineyard was planted in 1999 on own roots on white silica sand over sandstone and clay. Hand harvested prior to whole bunch pressing directly to oak for wild fermentation in Mercurey French oak Puncheons of which 20% were new. 100% Malolactic fermentation, with 8 months in oak on lees prior to 6 months in tank before bottling.
