Lot 13 – Quarter Barrique Bilancia 2019 Tiratore Chardonnay

56 Litres

Description

Auction Lot Details

Tiratore tiratore = shooter (Italian). The fruit for this wine is exclusively from la collina Vineyard where approximately 1.0 hectare of the terraced and incline hill site plus river silt over gravels is planted to Chardonnay. When we originally planted the vineyard almost every hole we dug (by hand) unearthed a spent bullet, quite old and generally in good condition. Prior to the rifle range on the gravels we imagine the shooters fired their bullets into the hill. 2019 was a spectacular vintage for Hawke’s Bay and this 2019 Tiratore Chardonnay will be a great wine for the future.
