Borachio - Carbonic Chardonnay 2021
Region: Adelaide Hills
100% whole bunch carbonic Chardonnay. 14 days locked in a tank, then pressed gently to another to finish fermentation, then to barrel for a long rest. Reductive and tight, this wine has a Chardonnay core. It's tropical elements enhanced through carbonic fermentation. A nice cut of acidity to keeps it all together.
From Borachio - "We’ve had this with SPICY AF food during vintage and it kept pace. Feels like day 3, or even 5, is the window for this one, but live your life. Don’t serve too cold. Your standard gross-red-wine temp works best and a firm decant doesn’t hurt either."
