2015 Stoney Rise Chardonnay


Sold out.  2015 will go down in Tasmania as one of our very best vintages.  It was a fantastic growing season, and while there was some rain during harvest it didn’t cause any problems as all the hard work had been done by then. Our 2015 Stoney Rise Chardonnay was made from fruit we purchased from a small vineyard about 5km from ours in the Tamar Valley.

This wine is made exactly the same as our Holyman Chardonnay except that we press it straight into 500 litre barrels that are 2 and 3 years old. It is naturally fermented and lees stirred while it is fermenting before having sulphur added at the end of the sugar ferment to inhibit malolactic fermentation.

Clean and crisp as a fresh spring morning. This wine is a more sprightly version of Chardonnay for us, but still with great length, and crisp acidity. A great summer drink, cold from the fridge with some oysters.
