2013 Kevin John Legacy Series Flower Day Chardonnay

The 2013 vintage conditions produced wines with great minerality. This is due to the low yields (1.4 tonnes/hectare) and excellent growing conditions during the Chardonnay harvest.

This parcel of Chardonnay was harvested on the New Moon, Flower Day, whole bunch pressed into Flower Barrels (barrels harvested and coopered on a Flower Day)

In these Flower Barrels the wines completed natural fermentation and was bottled un-fined and unfiltered from Barrel.
