This Chardonnay is made in a traditional full-bodied style. It is multifaceted and has been given the full treatment in the winery – 30% new French oak, malolactic fermentation, lees stirring for 12 months and full solids ferment. Rikard aim to cram this wine full of flavour whilst maintaining balance and freshness.
The 2018 vintage Chardonnay is made with the later/riper picks of fruit, with a higher pressings and phenolic proportion. It’s approachable in its youth and goes beautifully with food.
