Tillingham, Chardonnay 2020
A beautiful and open nose full of fresh nuts, and a stony minerality. The palate begins with waxy lime zest acidity which carries the wine into a broad and textural finish. The chardonnay here is from heavier soils, any richness is kept in check though with well balanced acidity.
Whole bunch pressed straight to stainless steel, fermented at ambient temperature. After alcoholic fermentation divided in to two batches for malolactic fermentation. The first one was put to barrel and the second one remained in stainless steel. 8 months aging on lees in the respective vessels. Racked and blended in stainless steel and bottled by gravity with a small sulfur addition.
Tillingham is set amongst 70 acres of rolling hills and woodlands with far reaching views along the Tillingham River valley and across to the fortified, hill top town of Rye, East Sussex, to the sea and the Romney salt marshes beyond. The philosophy at Tillingham would be best summarised as progressive: incorporating what we know of the best scientific and technological knowledge available to us, whilst championing ancient traditions and best practice learnt from millennia of farming and winemaking. At Tillingham they are committed to farming in a diverse, poly-cultural way, they believe this is not only a highly sustainable approach, but in conjunction with biodynamics, aims to restore soils to an optimum level of organic matter and microbial and wider ecological diversity.
