Notes sourced from Southern Cross Wines.
Grapes for the 1999 St Huberts Chardonnay came exclusively off the estate's own vineyards in the Coldstream sub-region of the Yarra Valley in Victoria. All the fruit achieved optimum ripeness where the grapes were picked at between 12.5° and 13.5° Baume. This wine started fermentation as settled clear juice in stainless steel, before being transferred to French oak for barrel fermentation and maturation. Proven Burgundian techniques were used in the making of this wine, where minimal interference was employed to create a wine that showed off its terroir. Extensive lees stirring for complexity and flavour was carried out in 100% French oak, where it remained for 8 months in a combination of new and seasoned barrels. Partial malo-lactic fermentation was encouraged in oak.
This is a premium, dry, full-bodied white wine with a fine structure. The colour is a vibrant mid straw. Aromas of nectarine, intense white peach, spice, and hints of grapefruit abound, as well as subtle savoury oak characters. On the rich palate there are wonderfully varietal Chardonnay flavours, a superb creamy texture and flavour, and elegant, balanced, spicy French oak. The finish is very long with a creamy mouthfeel, complex fruit flavours and well balanced acidity. Cellar up to 4 years. 12.9% alcohol Volume.This Chardonnay is a classic example of cool climate style and finesse. Judicious use of high quality French oak and other Burgundian techniques have resulted in a wine of undoubted class.
