2017 Jip Jip Rocks Chardonnay


Tasting Notes

Light yellow with a pale straw hue. A classic nose of lemon, fresh stonefruit and melon. The palate is clean and fresh with mineral characters underpinning ripe pineapple and lime flavours. This wine will age beautifully over the next 4-5 years.

Winemaking Report

Gentle pressing and free run juices create the base of this wine. Traditionally Jip Jip Rocks Chardonnay is a 2/3 blend fermented and matured in stainless steel and 1/3 fermented in French oak, which receives extended lees contact to add texture and complexity to the palate

Vintage Conditions

2017 Harvest commenced three weeks later than usual due to the cooler temperatures and slower ripening. This has resulted in good parcels of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with lovely aromatics & flavour. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon have good colour with concentrated berry flavours,vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines.
