Carrick Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay

Bannockburn

The Cairnmuir Terraces (EBM) Chardonnay is produced from fruit grown on the Cairnmuir Vineyard. EBM refers to Extended Barrel Maturation as the wine is racked from a mix of old and new barrels to older ones after about 12 months. This extra maturation for a further 6 months results in a textural wine with subtle mealy characters complementing the peach toast flavours.

All lots are fermented by indigenous yeast. Malo-lactic fermentation occurs naturally during the following spring. The ‘EBM’ (extended barrel maturation) programme at Carrick is a small selection of barrels (12% new) which is blended after 12 months and returned to older “neutral flavour” barrels for an extended period of 6 months. The wine is then carefully racked and bottled without fining or filtration.
