Quarter Barrique | 56 Litres

Description

Auction Lot Details

Back in 1994 when we hand harvested the first Chardonnay from our Riflemans vineyard, we chalked these barrels up as ‘Shotgun Chardonnay’. This was a tongue in cheek reference to the amount of time we spent keeping the hungry birds off our precious fruit. When it came to bottling, we decided on a more positive spin and called the wine Riflemans.

This auction lot is accordingly a nod to the past and is a unique blend of some of our finest barrels from this world-renowned vineyard. Hand-picked fruit from old vine Mendoza has been barrel fermented with indigenous yeast in new and one-year old French oak barriques. Aged for 12 months on ferment lees, this is a rich and very complex Chardonnay with layers of flavour and intense finish.
