2022 ‘Pump Shed’ Single Vineyard Chardonnay

From Bernard 76 clone Chardonnay vines on our Wrattonbully vineyard, the 2020 vintage produced very small crops leading to concentrated flavours and excellent acid balance. Careful handling with a judicious use of oak has crafted a restrained and complex Chardonnay with great fruit intensity.

“A 30yo vineyard planted on ebbs of low-yielding limestone. Hand picked, sorted and fermented spontaneously in a large (3000L) oval vessel, on full solids, where it remained for 9 months. This may well be the best wine under the Pepper Tree banner, tucking in a skein of mineral match-struck pungency amidst folds of stone fruits, nougatine, a waxy mandarin scent with a lick of quinine to kumquat bitterness to finish. Impressive palate-staining intensity. The oak, nicely nestled. A countenance of generosity melded with a contemporary verve. Delicious drinking that is more reminiscent of a flavourful wine from California than the more linear Aussie norm.”
