2021 Honky Chateau Ikigai Chardonnay

$32.00

Place: Healesville - Yarra Valley, Vic

Variety: Chardonnay

Farming: Sustainable

Honky Château is the passion project of recent Gourmet Traveller sommelier of the year Chris Ryan who can usually be found undertaking duties as head wine buyer for Cumulus Inc. 

From a single vineyard in Healesville.  All fruit was crushed and pressed relatively hard before settling in tank and gravity to all old 300L barrels.  All wild ferment and no stirring in barrel. Sulfur added and settled in tank. Bottled in a claret bottle in January

Bang in the middle of the chardonnay continuum between chablis and classic aussie chard. Stone fruit and grapefruit pith. Leads with some generosity but fresh finishes.
