Our 'The Wizard' Chardonnay goes well with crayfishGoes well with fresh crayfish

The richness and texture of crayfish (Southern Rock Lobster) requires a wine with depth and complexity. 'The Wizard' Chardonnay is a perfect match as it has the body, weight and palate presence to bring out the best in this crustacean.

Local crayfish suppliers.


Winemaking notes

'The Wizard' Chardonnay is a blend of only the five best barrels of Chardonnay from the 2016 vintage. The fruit for this wine was whole bunch pressed and then transferred to barrel for full wild fermentation. 80% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and 80% was matured in new French oak. A mix of coopers is used to ensure we get good complexity without overt oak characters. The wine was lees stirred monthly for 12 months prior to being bottled in June 2017.


Tasting notes

This is a refined and elegant Chardonnay. Full barrel fermentation with 80% new oak and 100% wild fermentation has resulted in a wine with great complexity and style. The nose displays aromas of citrus fruit, apricot kernel and white peach with spicy integrated oak, whilst the palate is fine and minerally.
