Barrel Selection Chardonnay 2023


Nougat, white nectarine and meyer lemon. Focus, intensity and balance. In 2023, we had a cool growing season that produced exceptional wines across all varieties. Harvested from multiple blocks on the Napoleone Vineyard, including older plantings of clones 76 and 95 and more recent plantings of P58 and Mendoza clones, this chardonnay was fermented naturally in French oak (35% new, all puncheons). Lees were stirred (battonage) regularly to build texture and complexity. We selected the best chardonnay parcels (seven barrels) to blend this elegant yet powerful, complex fruit-focused wine with great drive and tense acidity.

Year Vines Planted: various (oldest 2001) Vineyard Blocks: 6 & 14 Clones: 76, 95, P58 & Mendoza

Maturation (oak): 35% new French oak - D&J, Mercurey and Sirugue Yeast: Wild Cellaring Potential: 5-8 years

“Pear, citrus and nectarine flavours with oak spice, custard powder and assorted florals. It feels both punchy and compact, the latter in a good way, a tonic-like note lacing the finish.”
