Wine Summary Image

Viticulture

To achieve the elegance, depth & characters which we require, the vines are cane pruned to achieve an even canopy. Shoot thinning is performed as early as possible in September to ensure a low number of shoots per vine helping us create an open canopy. This gives us good air circulation and even ripening. Summer pruning on the northern side promotes a relatively early harvest.

Vinification

The hand-picked fruit was whole bunch pressed & cold settled before being run to barrel & tank for fermentation at low temperature to preserve the fruit characters. The French oak barrel (30% new) fermented component was lees stirred for 3 months to promote oak integration & textural complexity. The two parcels were blended together prior to bottling under screw cap.

Expert Reviews

Although nothing is said about it, the percentage of new oak in this bottling of 200 dozen seems significantly higher than that of its sibling. The flavours also take in white peach and nectarine to further broaden the flavour spectrum. - James Halliday

Winery Tasting Notes

Our Jones Road Estate Chardonnay is a selection of superior quality in the vineyard and made with a view to adding gentle complexity in the winery. Whole bunch pressing, minimal juice settling and incorporating grape solids during barrel fermentation all work to deliver a complex and engaging young chardonnay. Oak maturation is carefully monitored to ensure the right amount of time in oak is married with the right balance of new and seasoned barrels. The 2012 Jones Road Chardonnay shows concentrated cool-climate chardonnay characters of grapefruit, peach and nectarine fruits, smooth complex texture and effortless balance.

Winery Profile

The Frewer family established Jones Road vineyard in 1997 at Somerville on The Mornington Peninsula overlooking Westernport Bay. The maritime climate of this region produces some of Australia's best cool climate wines because of the late ripening, the fertile soil and careful vineyard management.

Since those early days we have secured lease on 2 other vineyards here on The Peninsula. One on the Port Phillip side, close to the water and the other at Balnarring near the Westernport Bay. This has increased our vineyards to 60 acres. With these extra parcels of fruit it gives the winemakers an opportunity to blend from the different sites, mixing different terroirs.

Matt, the vineyard manager has gained recognition for his attention to detail and care of his vines. This has lead to other vineyards requesting his advice and operational skills. He is now caring for another six vineyards on The Peninsula.
