Littorai B.A Thieriot Chardonnay 2014




The B.A. Thieriot Vineyard is located to the southwest of Occidental at 275 metres above sea level on a south facing slope. It is protected from the northwest winds and fog by a ridge to the north. Farmed biodynamically, the 18 year old vines are vertical trellised and the vineyard entirely dry farmed. Soils here are Gold Ridge loam.

The fruit was hand-harvested and whole cluster pressed on arrival at the winery with the heavy press juice separated out. The juice was then 90% barrel fermented in 25% new French oak barrels with the remaining 10% fermented in stainless steel tank. Full malolactic fermentation took place in barrel and the wine spent a number of months on its fine lees in stainless steel before bottling.
