Picardy Chardonnay is made from grapes grown from four clones imported from France. These clones were selected from several hundred grown in a decade long trial conducted in Burgundy.
In 1998 Picardy produced a single barrel of Chardonnay from the new clones, originally planted in 1994. The wine possesses the floral and fine grassy (sour sob/ oxalis grass) characters expected in a young Burgundian Chardonnay. This wine has great texture and structure with high acid and extra ordinarily low pH whilst retaining perfect balance.
The 1999 Picardy Chardonnay shares these same qualities as well as exhibiting minerally flavours, with the refinement and length of the great Burgundies. Given this wines structure and fruit intensity it will live for many years.
