VITICULTURE 100% Adelaide Hills, South Australia Burgundian Clones Single Vineyard Estate Grown VINIFICATION The fruit for the Wicks Estate Adelaide Hills 20165 Chardonnay was harvested on 14th of March, then destemmed and chilled prior to being gently pressed in our airbag press. The slightly cloudy juice was racked directly to a blend of new and seasoned French Oak barriques the following day where it was allowed to warm prior to inoculation with our desired yeast strain. We also experimented with a range of juice clarity levels, aiding the development of texture and complexity. On completion of primary fermentation the barrels were stirred weekly and matured for a further nine months prior to final blending. MATURATION/BOTTLING Bottled under a Screw Cap Closure to ensure freshness and product consistency. CELLARING The Wicks Estate Adelaide Hills 2016 Chardonnay will drink beautifully whilst young, yet has the capacity to age and develop gracefully in the cellar.
