Chardonnay is one of the most famous and widely planted white wine grape varieties around the world. Its spiritual home is Burgundy, France. Chardonnay is one of the most malleable of wines with an affinity for oak which will impact flavours and characteristics.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from ten different vineyard sites. All fruit for this wine is hand harvested over a three week period resulting in a number of batches with varying sugar and acidity levels. The result is a well balanced wine with elegance and restraint.
Glen Carlou uses special water-bent barrels from a cooper in Frnace. These sophisticated barrels impart a light touching of oak and allow the fruit to express itself, producing Glen Carlou’s Classic Chardonnay style.
