Amelia Park have produced this great Chardonnay using 100% wild fermentation in French oak. Lees stirring has delivered excellent complexity and texture. With a fragrant and ripe bouquet, the medium bodied palate delivers modern Australian Chardonnay goodness with fruit flavours of white peach, nashi pear and zesty citrus flavours. Light acidity and fresh fruit flavour persists through a lingering finish.
Awards and Accolades
2016 Vintage: 95 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Gin Gin, Davis and Dijon clones from the home vineyard in Wilyabrup, whole bunch-pressed, settled overnight, cloudy juice wild-fermented in French oak, matured on lees for 9 months with minimal stirring. Vibrant, zesty and fresh, with white peach and grapefruit dividing the spoils of the overall flavour set. It is terrifyingly good at its price and origin."
From the Winery
The Chardonnay is made solely from our home block in Wilyabrup. There are 3 different clones of Chardonnay on our property being the Gin Gin, Davis and Dijon clones.
All three parcels were hand picked on the same day and chilled overnight. The following day the grapes were tipped as whole bunches directly into our press and gently pressed off into a tank. Natural settling occurred overnight and the cloudy juice was then sent to French oak barrels twenty four hours later. Wild fermentation was completed in barrel and allowed to mature on its own lees for nine months, with minimal stirring during this time, to maintain freshness and natural acidity.
