Very pale yellow.

Aroma

Ripe preserved lemons with yellow peach abound from the glass. Underlying nuances of nutty vanillan oak and buttery malolactic complexity complete the aroma.

Winemaking Notes

To ensure that fruit was harvested at its optimal maturity, winemakers regularly visited Premium Chardonnay vineyards within the Barossa and Eden Valleys to determine the optimal harvest date for individual blocks. Once harvested the fruit was transferred directly to the winery where it was crushed, chilled and gently pressed to avoid skin contact. Once clarified, individual juice parcels were inoculated with desired yeast strains and fermented in new and one year old French oak barrels at controlled temperatures. After primary fermentation select parcels underwent malolactic fermentation, with a further 9 months on yeast lees with regular stirring taking place for all components.
