Si Vintners - Bella Chardonnay 2019
Region: Margaret River
2019 was a hard year in the vineyard for Si Vintners. Much of their crops were lost to spring frost and the resulting harvest was minuscule. Less than 1 tonne/hectare was hand harvest in February, direct press to old oak and puncheon for wild ferment. Left in barrel for 18 months and then in bottle for another 6 before release. As always organically farmed, natural yeast fermented, unfined / unfiltered and minimal added sulphur.
