2021 Future Perfect Chardonnay
- Future Perfect Wines
- Derwent Valley TAS
Natural primary and malolactic fermentation 11 months in oak, predominantly old barriques. Unfined and unfiltered
Thomas’ winemaking is self-described as honest and rustic. HIs corner of the modest winery is little more than a few barrels, basket presses and some tanks - and the very necessary forklift, which takes the place of wine pumps. The wines see spontaneous primary fermentation and Malo follows naturally in spring. Barrels are predominantly old with some new puncheons in the mix. The wines are moved only by gravity and bottled without fining or filtration. Fruit sourcing is articulate and very small scale. It’s too early for leases/contracts as Thomas is in the early stages of his label. His first vintage, here is less than 200 dozen in total production. From little things, big things grow.
