Little Engine’s French Family Release Chardonnay showcases stony minerality throughout – classically reminiscent of northern Burgundy Chablis. Summer floral notes, aromas of apricot, lemon & mandarin orange lead into a fresh palate of white peach & nectarine and hints of lime & honey, all structured with vibrant acidity.
Best enjoyed now through 2022.
The fruit is hand harvested then allowed to cool overnight. Grapes are either whole cluster pressed or de-stemmed and cold soaked for 12 – 16 hours and then pressed. Free and press run juices are kept separate. This Chardonnay is 100% stainless steel tank fermented using a variety of yeasts, to create a complexity of flavours and aromatic esters.
