Beautiful with prawns, ocean fish and, of course, oysters.
French oak; a combination of 30% new, 30% once used and 40% older.
A bright & attractive pale straw.
Fresh stone fruit aromas of peaches & nectarines with light rockmelon characters.
Has a lovely 'silky' palate with those gorgeous, fresh stone fruit flavours predominating. This wine is well flavoured though has good delicacy and is beautifully balanced. The French oak used has added complexity without overriding the Chardonnay fruit flavours. It has an excellent acidity giving a nice 'zing' on the finish and contributing to its good length of flavour.
The best parcels of Chardonnay from our Langton vineyard were selected for our Styx Gully with the fruit harvested early in March. It was entirely fermented in French oak; a combination of 30% new, 30% once used and 40% older with the barrels stirred regularly for maximum lees contact over its nine month maturation period. This is a Chardonnay in the 'modern' Australian style; malolactic fermentation was prevented to produce a wine with complexity while still retaining maximum fruit flavour.
