2019 Femme Nue Charvignon
  • 2019 Femme Nue Charvignon


    Variety: ‘Charvignon’ Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc


    Vineyard: Fruit was sourced from a single vineyard to make this blend;

    Yering Farm Estate Single Vineyard located in the heart of the Yarra Valley in an area known as ‘Yering’. Vineyard established is 1989, it has both a North and East exposure. Relatively low in altitude, the vineyard is subject to many cool nights, so it is one of the last to ripen its fruit.


    Grape Variety: 60% Sauvignon Blanc & 40% Chardonnay


    Soil Composition: Sandy with clay loams.


    Training System: Scott Henry.


    Winemaking: For the Sauvignon Blanc component; Hand harvested grapes, crushed and de-stemmed, skin contact for a few days, then pressed and transferred into temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Juice was inoculated with a suitable yeast culture and the wine left on lees prior to blending.

    For the Chardonnay component; Whole bunches straight into the press. Gentle pressing took place with the free run juice separated.  Inoculated with a yeast culture and transferred straight to barrel where primary fermentation took place for over 15 days. Malo-lactic bacteria added to barrel. Wine left on lees prior to blending.


    Maturation: In 300 Litre French Oak Barrels used for Chardonnay, of which 33% were new. Sauvignon Blanc was matured in stainless steel.


    Tasting Notes: Refreshing citrus and summer fruit flavours with a hint of vanilla (from the Chardonnay), complemented by a soft round texture which finishes with some zippy acidity.
