2017 Hickson Chardonnay - PRE-ORDER

*Available for pre-order. Expected release date March 2018*

The Hickson Vineyard consists of two acres of Chardonnay planted by the Hickson family in 1982. One of a sprinkling of vineyards preluding the rise of the Mornington Peninsula. A heritage site lovingly restored in 2013 by Kerri Greens. 

The Hickson site is managed without herbicide, systemic fungicides or insecticides. Irrigation is not used on this dryland site. 

The 2017 vintage produced pristine fruit hand harvested at only 800kg per acre. Whole bunch pressed into barrel -20% new- and left on full solids until racking late December of the same year. Primary fermentation took place using wild yeast and without the assistance of sulphur. Malolactic naturally kicked off the following spring, partially completing before giving it up on its own accord. Sulphur was added at bottling.
