Holyman Chardonnay - Tamar Valley

Vintage: 2016 Region: Tasmania
Type: Whites
Winery: Stoney Rise
Tasting Notes:

Due to the warmer weather in the 2016 vintage (especially at night) our wines fermented a little faster than usual, which has resulted in the wines being a little more fruit driven than the usual wines we make. This wine has an approachable almost rockmelon flavour and aroma. It's inviting, immediately approachable but still has an underlying structure to it that will allow it to be cellared confidently.

'Will Joe stay on top this year? There was no complimentary tin of Boag’s Red in the sample box. Just saying…Almond and ginger biscuits, discreet and citrus laden, and I’m thinking grapefruit-y goodness, mainly, with a touch of smoke and white flower perfume. It runs tight on rails of cool minerally acidity, yet has a milky softness, like the hands of a baby dipped in oatmeal, along with the zing of real lemonade, with fresh ginger adding that little bit extra. Length is assured, and reassuring, all that flint and chalkiness signing the deal. It’s a great wine. Crackling with energy, yet juicy and approachable.'  96 Points - Gary Walsh - Winefront

So many options ut roast chicken might just be perfect.

At its highest point the vineyard is only 30 meters above sea level, with the lowest being less than 10 meters, and it is less than 1 kilometre from the Tamar River.We have 0.75 of a hectare of Chardonnay, 3.2 hectares of Pinot Noir and 0.2 of a hectare of recently planted Grüner Veltliner for a total of 4.2 hectares. The rows run north/south and have a row spacing of 2.2 meters and the vines are 1.2m apart giving a density of 4500 vines per hectare.

The spur pruned vines are treated individually in relation to the crop they carry. We never have more than two bunches of grapes per shoot and any vines that are weaker will only have 1 bunch per shoot which results in us averaging 1.5 bunches per shoot or 4.5 tonnes per hectare.We are very conscious of our environment; we use minimal sprays and have not used herbicides for 3 years. We have begun to use some biodynamic preparations on the soil in an effort to build soil health which we believe will result in increased vine health.
