2011 The Rusty Shed
Tasting NotesThe nose shows delicate floral notes, tangerine and subtle baking spices. On the palate the wine has a fresh and vibrant texture with our signature minerality from the Flat Rock vineyard. A gentle toastiness frames the wine and adds structure to the mid-palate.
Winemaker NotesThe 2011 vintage presented some unique challenges in the vineyard. In order to maximize flavour Chardonnay was left on the vine until October 7th. The fruit for the Rusty Shed is always hand-picked, sorted and gently pressed to capture purity. Traditional barrel fermentation is followed by 10-months aging in oak. A mix of new & seasoned French Oak is used to protect the fruit impact of the wine.
PairingsBeef tomatoes dressed in olive oil with garlic flakes and Parmesan
