**New Release** Rosabrook Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay 2013

23 January 2014

We are very happy to announce the release of the Rosabrook Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay 2013.

The Rosabrook Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay 2013 is an elegant and delicately structured wine. A fruit forward style with stone fruit and citrus and subtle vanillin oak adding complexity and texture.

See Rosabrook’s Winemaker Brian Fletcher’s technical notes below:

WINEMAKER’S NOTE: Hand selected fruit and low extract winemaking make this a wine with clear lifted fruit and a fine delicate palate. Complex and savoury aromas lead to a tight crisp persistent melon and cashed rich palate. The finish is very persistent and creamy.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS: A warm start to the vintage was moderated by later rains that cooled the region considerably and saw a vintage of fine and consistent quality fruit.

VINEYARDS: Drawn from our most southern Margaret River source of Chardonnay so that we could accentuate pure fruit flavours.

VINIFICATION: Hand-picked fruit was chilled overnight, bunch pressed and a low extract juice was fermented 100 % in a mixture of oak ages and forests. After eight months in maturation, the wine was clarified and held cold until bottling.
