We are very excited to announce the release of the first ever Rosabrook Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay!
A very elegant style Chardonnay from the 2012 vintage with pale straw colour and green tinges. The nose shows lifted, fresh fruit aromas balanced with some new oak. The palate has clean pure fruit flavours, subtle minerality and well integrated oak, with tremendous length of flavour and persistence.
The 2012 growing season was dominated by a succession of warm fronts post new year. Fortunately this was preceded by a good winter and spring giving rise to good canopy development and soil moisture levels. The vintage was fairly early as the previous two vintages. The fruit for the Rosabrook Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay was drawn from our most southern Margaret River source of Chardonnay so that we could accentuate pure fruit flavours.
The fruit was hand-picked and chilled overnight prior to whole bunch pressing at a moderate rate of extraction. The juice was settled 24 hours and racked to ferment, and half run to new French oak at mid ferment, the balance remaining in steel for the whole maturation of the wine with no malolactic ferment. After assessment, the wine was reassembled, lightly fined and bottled.
