2022 Giaconda Estate Vineyard Chardonnay Beechworth

From: $280.00

2022 Giaconda Estate Vineyard Chardonnay Beechworth – Wine making should be subtle and always seek balance – this should never seek to dominate the Terroir or characteristics of any given vintage. Giaconda wines are hand-crafted according to basically a natural wine making process. To them this means indigenous yeasts are employed for fermentation, natural bacteria for Malolactic fermentation, French oak barrel ageing, minimal sulphur additions, and no filtration before bottling.

The winery, barrel maturation cave and bottling facility are all set up for gravity flow. This means the wines are very rarely pumped or manipulated mechanically. Instead they are gently moved by gravity or gas pressure during the entire wine making process.

In the case of Chardonnay, their fruit is hand picked, lightly crushed and then basket pressed – before being transferred to French oak barrels (approximately 30% new) for fermentation and ageing.

Characters of matchstick are evident and in keeping with recent vintages 2017-2021. An intensely aromatic wine backed by powerful fruit. Complex characters of subterranean smoky peat emerge, with an explosion of white peach and nectarine on the finish. Penetratingly long, yet fine, with all the hallmarks of Giaconda chardonnay that you have come to expect.

Another high-end release of Giaconda chardonnay.
