2017 vintage notes
A knockout, from taste to value. Sophisticated and refreshing, this suave beauty exudes fresh lemon, pear, crushed minerals and jasmine. Brick House's Chardonnay program is an homage to the great white wines of Burgundy, which gives you more than a hint at their stylistic leanings.
"The 2017 Brick House Chardonnay was grown just yards from our crush pad and wine press, thus ensuring the freshness of the fruit as it began its journey to becoming wine. The wine was barrel fermented in largely neutral French oak cooperage. It completed a full malolactic fermentation, contributing to the rich, round texture of the finished wine. The 2017 remained in barrel for twelve months and then was moved to tank for a further eight months. Bottled in May of 2019, this is a savory Chardonnay unencumbered by oak and exhibiting a hint of salinity on the nose and bright citrus and stone fruits on the palate." - the winery
