JC’s Own Morialta Chardonnay 2020

I’ve been making wine for twenty years now, mostly in the Barossa, most recently in the USA but I do it because it’s a hell of a lot of fun for me and I get a lot out of the process. My enjoyment stems from being outdoors, the physical work and getting dirty, the science with a bit of guesswork and the chance to drink many amazing wines in the name of research. They call it a lifestyle industry and i’m all in on this. Through all this and getting older and apparently more wise, i’ve come to realise that wine is about what you want it to be. For me there’s a time for fun, enjoyment and adventure. There’s also the realisation that some special vineyards just need to be bottled without mucking about too much. So you’ll see that in my JC’s Own wines – some adventurously different wines in style and packaging and limited releases that pay respect to distinguished single sites around the world. I’ve also got a great young family and as such living sustainably sits high in our household. We live day to day with respect to our environment and I bring this to my wines, in as much as I can control. I seek grapes from sustainable vineyards, i’m minimalistic in my winemaking where using natural yeasts, low sulphurs and no fining and filtration also sit well within this philosophy. In short, these are pure wines that fuel my enjoyment and it’s awesome I can share this with you.

Being a Barossa guy at heart, I’ve always worked with varieties that fit in this landscape, think Viognier, Marsanne, Riesling, Semillon. So, for the past decade or more I’ve been ageing these broader white varieties on lees for nearly a year – I love the texture it builds and the body and character it gives. I wanted to push this ‘sur lie’ technique a bit further and I needed a variety that would have the balance of acidity and structure that would handle extended lees ageing in barrel. Chardonnay was the obvious choice, and with great vineyard sites in the Adelaide Hills under an hour away, there was no reason not to take a punt and have a go. For me this example of chardonnay shows a bit of my Barossa breeding, a bit more oxidised, structured and full bodied than the normal hills examples, but the zippy acidity that interplays with toasty lees characters was exactly what I was looking for.

Hand harvested and pressed as 100% whole clusters. Pressings remaining separate. Barrel fermented in new and seasoned French oak puncheons and barriques Aged on lees for 18 months before bottling with no fining or filtration.
