2013 Pemberton Chardonnay
The Pemberton Chardonnay is a complex dry white. It derives it's flavours and texture not just from the natural compounds of the grape but with the introduction of Oak and baton nage. These elements help to add texture and palate weight to support the grapes natural generous and elegant fruit flavours. This style of wine represents a great challenge to winemakers as it uses a number of different techniques.
The introduction of new elements, such as oak and baton nage, require careful judgement and clear thinking from the winemaker to maintain the wine 1s balance and respecting natural fruit flavours
