  • Chardonnay More Information

    An award-winning blended 100% chardonnay wine with a depth of fruit and body
    that takes Lyme Bay Chardonnay to the next level in winemaking quality.
    A beautiful, long, hot summer in 2020 enabled grapes to fully ripen on the vine,
    resulting in intensity of flavour and body. Our Chardonnay 2020 is a blend of
    aromatic and non-aromatic chardonnay fruit sourced from a collection of
    growers in Essex where the microclimate and soil allows the grapes to achieve
    excellent ripeness, harvested between 8 – 20th October 2020. Fermented in a
    mixture of stainless steel and oak at cool temperatures using selected Burgundy
    yeast strains to enhance complexity, stone fruit, floral characters and minerality.
    Post fermentation there was full malolactic fermentation and extended fine lees
    ageing with some bâtonnage to accentuate the natural weight and ripe fruit.
    Light gold in colour
    A complex nose of creamy green & red apples, toast, peaches & a hint of mango
    Rounded with nice weight, ripe stone fruit characters combine with the subtle
    creaminess of the oak creating layers of flavour and complexity. A crisp and
    complex framework makes this wine an excellent match with food, and it also has
    the structure to support extended ageing.
