Winemaking Notes

The vineyards from which we source fruit for our X&Y Chardonnay are located in the central and northern parts of the Margaret River winegrowing region. These vineyards consistently produce Chardonnay wines with intense stone fruit flavours and great texture. The Chardonnay fruit from each block was picked at night and gently transferred to an airbag press to extract the finest quality juice.

The juice was then cold settled and racked for fermentation. Part of the ferment (30 per cent) was fermented and matured on French oak with the balance being fermented in stainless steel to impart primary fruit purity to the final blend. All batches were lees stirred to provide texture and mouth-feel in the end wine. Once blended, the wine was lightly fined before bottling for an early release.
