Forest Hill Highbury Fields Chardonnay 2018 (Great Southern, Western Australia) "...stonefruit, citrus, melons..."
The 2018 growing season in Mount Barker began a little early and with strong vigor spurred on by very good soil moisture from winter rains. The last major rain event was in September with 137mm falling setting up our dry grown vineyards for the season. Summer was dry although with moderate day time temperatures and very few days exceeding 30°C. There was very little disease pressure and cool night time temperatures helped maintain natural acidity. Harvest dates were generally early across most varieties although more pronounced in the reds.
Bright straw with green hues. Aromas of citrus, stonefruit and flint. Generous palate with flavours of melons and citrus. Textured with elegant finish.
