Lightfoot & Sons 'Myrtle Point' Chardonnay 2018

"The Lightfoot Chardonnays are very similar, the differences lying as much in the vineyard as the winery. The overall light touch in vinification also brings the wines closer together." 95pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion

About this Wine
A fresh, bright, modern Chardonnay. Citrus, white Peach and melon layered with subtle complexity gained from barrel fermentation and maturation.

"Chardonnay from Gippsland. Another good release. It’s a milky chardonnay with good energy and line, nectarine and citrus notes floated with custard powder and honey. Character and length. Most attractive chardonnay. Modern style." 92+ pts - Campbell Mattinson - The WineFront

About the Winery
Lightfoot & Sons Myrtle Point Vineyard is located in East Gippsland, Victoria, within view of the Gippsland Lakes. The vineyard site, situated between the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and Bass Strait, was selected when soil mapping of the region identified tracts of the much celebrated Terra Rosa over Limestone soil structure.

The 29Ha vineyard was planted between 1995-1997 by the Lightfoot family on their farm ‘Myrtle Point’. Pinot Noir plantings make up almost half, with smaller bocks of Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet.

The wines are made by Alastair Butt and Tom Lightfoot. Alastair brings more than 25 years of winemaking experience to the winery, working previously in the Yarra Valley and Hunter Valley.   After completing a Viticultural Science and Wine Production degree, Tom has worked a number of vintages in wineries throughout Australia and the Northern Hemisphere.  Tom now manages the Myrtle Point Vineyard and assists Alastair in winemaking.
