2017 J.B.S Chardonnay
Jane & Tristen were tasked with the very difficult job of tasting through all of the 2017 Chardonnay Barrels in our wine caves. They quarantined two outstanding barrels, while the remaining barrels of Chardonnay were sent off to bottle to become the 2017 Elizabeth Chardonnay.
The two barrels which were set aside had already aged for 12 months in brand new French oak, was moved to another set of fresh French oak barrels for an additional aging period of 6 months before bottling.
This process ensured that the JBS Chardonnay had a total balance of fruit and oak flavours. The end result is a remarkable Chardonnay grown right here on Yonah's estate.
