Kerri Greens Hickson Chardonnay 2020

$40.00

Despite the excellent, if curious labels, the wine’s of Kerri Greens are entirely classical. Lovely bouquet of stone fruits, lime , white flowers, grapefruit, cream and a dusting of oak spice. Fleshy palate, with vivid flavours, cut through with a terrific line of acidity. Yum! Waters Wine Co

The Hickson Vineyard consists of two acres of Chardonnay planted by the Hickson family in 1982. One of a sprinkling of vineyards preluding the rise of the Mornington Peninsula. A heritage site lovingly restored in 2013 by Kerri Greens.

The 2020 vintage produced excellent quality fruit hand harvested at only 1.9T per acre. Whole bunch pressed and left on solids for a full 10 months then settled in tank for a further 8 weeks. Hickson has always been fermented in puncheons. In keeping with this but presented with a significantly smaller crop the decision was made to use no new wood this year for fear of overpowering.

Primary fermentation took place using wild yeast and without the assistance of sulphur. Malolactic naturally kicked off the following spring, partially completing before giving it up on its own accord. Bottled without fining or filtration.

An exciting addition to the Peninsula wine scene, Kerri Greens brings together two adventurous and forward-thinking young vignerons – Tom McCarthy and Lucas Blanck, crafting single-site wines from self-managed vineyards in Balnarring and Red Hill.
