2014 Platinum Block 5 Chardonnay *Sold Out*
Each year, there are single blocks of vineyard that show us something unique - small spots where vine maturity, soil and climate combine to create something distinclty CedarCreek. From its cool site, high up in the vineyard (directly beneath our winemaker's front porch), Block 5 gave us rich, ripe fruit in 2014. It deserved to shine, so we let it. We used no malolactic fermentation to round it out, and chose 500-litre puncheons for aging to keep the oak influence gentle. We wanted this wine to be as pure as the grapes when we tasted them at harvest. You can taste the unique character of Block 5 in every glass. On that you have our word.
A Not-So-Little, Little Thing
Coming from one of our highest altitude vineyards this Chardonnay has razor sharp acidity. This will also allow it to age for another 8+ years.
