Our Rusty Shed Chardonnay bottling is an expression of our best parcels of Chardonnay and our best barrels. The fruit is whole bunch pressed to yield only the purist juice then gently rolled to barrel for fermentation. In 2012 the fermentation was vigorous due to the heat of the season, and a decision whether to inhibit the secondary malolactic fermentation or to let the wine evolve further was made in November. This is a blend of predominantly (45%) of our clone 95 on 3309 rootstock with the balance coming from 3 distinct clone/rootstock selections. We are looking for elegance and power in The Rusty Shed Chardonnay.
