Run Free by Singlefile Chardonnay 2017

Pressed into French Oak barriques, partial wild fermentation. Lees stirred weekly, but no malolactic fermentation to preserve primary fruit flavours.

Good varietal nose: yellow and white stone fruit and roast nutty, barrel ferment characters. The oak delivers a creaminess in lieu of the MLF. Citrus and stonefruit mid palate with nougat richness. The oak feels a touch raw but there’s still plenty of fruit vibrancy to push through it.

RRP: $25
Alc: 13.2%
Rating: 17.5/20
