Nova Vita Art Series Reserve Chardonnay 2015
THE VINTAGE：The 2015 growing season was an excellent growing season well suited to the production of fine and elegant Chardonnay. Budburst was within 7 days of the average throughout the Hills and the season opened with little frost and warm spring days enhancing shoot growth. Moderate to warm temperatures right up to ripening allowed for enhanced flavour development and stress free picking.
THE WINE：The Chardonnay grapes were handpicked and were gently whole bunch pressed with only the free run juice retained. The 2015 chardonnay was a heavy solid “wild ferment” – known technically as indigenous yeast fermentation utilising only natural yeast on the grapes. This is the second vintage we have experimented with large format 500 litre French Puncheon wine barrels and it’s been an outstanding success.
APPELLATION：Adelaide Hills, Australia
