2015 Holyman Chardonnay


Sold out.  This wine as with all of the Holyman wines is 100% estate grown and comes off of only 30 rows which were planted in 1986. It’s also exciting for us to let you know that this is the 10th release of this wine.

The fruit for this wine was pressed directly into 100% new 500 litre French oak puncheons. It stays in oak for 10 months on lees before bottling in late February.

The fruit is very pure, there is a combination of white peach and pear on the nose. On the palate the white peach comes through, the oak is there, but as an accompaniment to the fruit. There is our customary acid which stems from the fact we try not to let the wine go through malolactic fermentation. It finishes long and strong and will be a wine that will happily lay down in the cellar.
