Ten Minutes By Tractor Wallis Chardonnay 2018

This site gets sunny days, with the tempering sea breeze influence. Soft, savoury in its finish, but buoyed by lemon pith, florals and spice. 

"Wallis (Tree Block 100%) :: P58 (100%). Whole bunch pressed and the unsettled juice fermented by indigenous yeasts in 15% new oak, some 228 litre French oak barrels, some 600 litre Austrian oak barrels. A 10 month aging in barrel with no batonnage to keep wines fresher and more taut. Natural partial (88%) malolactic fermentation before bottling unfined and filtered.

Complexity is the name of the game with Wallis, and this iteration is another complete wine. Despite the firm grapefruit acidity that is the Wallis hallmark, there are layers of flavour here – subtle hints of oatmeal from the malolactic fermentation, the white nectarine fruit cloaked in tight by all this structure. Fresh, but not facile, I feel this is just waiting to unfurl in bottle." - Ten Minutes By Tractor
