2016 Garagiste Merricks Chardonnay is a stunning Mornington Peninsula wine.  The elevated and cooler Merricks Grove Vineyard sits on grey sandy loam with traces of red ironstone.  The altitude and sea breezes add a compressed nuance to the wine which results on a coiled mouth feel whilst those ironstone soils impart a more mineral noted chardonnay.  Fruit for the 2016 Garagiste Merricks Chardonnay is hand picked in the vineyard and hand sorted in the winery.  Whole bunch pressed with fermentation on solids.  Malolactic fermentation adds a satiny texture but you know you have a cool climate wine due to the fine and natural acidity and mineral freshness.  The 2016 vintage of Garagiste's Merricks Chardonnay was fermented in large 500L puncheons, of which 20% were new, and was matured on lees for 10 months.
