Nine Yards Chardonnay

Nine Yards Chardonnay

Ref: A131615

The ultimate expression of Jordan terroir. The Nine Yards Chardonnay is made in a Reserve Style, from a barrel selection from their best vineyard site. Stylistically different to our Jordan Chardonnay, with this wine we went “The Whole Nine Yards”!

The vineyards are situated between 250 – 280m above sea level and this 19 year old, site-specific vineyard is planted to both Burgundian and Davis clone Chardonnay. East-facing Hutton and Glenrosa soils, innovative canopy management and low crop levels ensure that the vineyard produces smaller berries with concentrated citrus flavours.

The grapes were harvested on the 25th February 2008 and were crushed and pressed immediately after de-stemming, the juice was barrel-fermented in traditional 228-litre French oak barrels (95% new and 5% second fill) from selected Burgundian cooperages (François Frères, Rousseau, Seguin Moreau and Taransaud). The barrels were inoculated with a selection of French yeast. A percentage of the wine went through natural fermentation. Differing stylistically from the varietal Jordan Chardonnay, the wine was matured “sur lie” for 12 months, with regular barrel-rolling to accentuate the rich, leesy character.

Butterscotch, spicy cloves, lemon/lime and orange peel with complex mineral citrus flavours. A rich mouthfeel and subtly balanced toasty French oak integrate with the long, tropical peach and melon finish. After a light filtration, the wine was bottled on the 11th February 2009.

Bright raspberry flavours on the palate with an underlying complexity makes this an outstanding wine
