Longridge - The Emily 2016
This unique wine is made up of predominantly unoaked Chardonnay grapes, blended with a small amount of lightly wooded Pinot Noir grapes from the cooler Elgin region. Both grapes were whole bunch pressed and allowed to ferment using wild yeast. The Pinot Noir was aged in wood barrels while the Chardonnay remained in stainless steel tanks and remained of the lees for 9 months before being blended together.
This is a fresh wine with aromas of ripe guava, pineapple, kiwi, fresh citrus and kumquat preserve, green apple and ending with a well-balanced acidity and lingering finish.
