Chardonnay Vineyard

As my Sangiovese wasn't looking too good i decided to make some Chardonnay.  The vineyard is much closer to my house which means i get to taste it more before i decided when to pick.

I was looking at the fruit yesterday and it tasted like limes, grapefruit and white peach with a pure and vibrant acidity, so I decided to pick. We will see how it looks once it goes into barrel. 

My daughter was helping so we picked ½ a tonne.  Hang on she ate most of it from picking to the start of the de-stemming!
