The grapes for the Jordan Barrel Fermented Chardonnay are 100% Chardonnay harvested from mature vineyards (10 to 24 years old) planted with selected Davis and Burgundian clones. After harvest the and pressing the juice is barrel-fermented in a selection of 228 litre French oak barrels (45% new, 30% second-fill and 25% third-fill Nevers and Burgundian oak barrels). The wine is then aged for a further 9 months “sur lie” with occasional rolling over of the barrels to increase the lees-y character, adding creaminess and texture. 8% of tank-fermented Chardonnay is added to the blend which add fresher, well-balanced citrus flavours. All the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.
