The palate is equally pure and fruit driven with grapefruit, citrus and white apple flavours supported by a fine mineral backbone and bracing acidity. A refreshing and grown up style of Chardonnay.

Winery Tasting Notes
The nose is fresh and pure with citrus and stone fruit aromas backed by hints of matchstick and toast.
A rich and complex Chardonnay that despite the oak maturation and lees work is still very much fruit driven and defined by a backbone of mineral acidity. The palate is taut and racy with an initial burst of grapefruit and white apple flavours building to a textural and complex finish.
This wine will continue to gain complexity and character for up to 10 years.
The fruit is sourced from established, high altitude vineyards up to 850m. The fruit is hand picked and partially whole bunch pressed. A temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel is followed by partial malo-lactic fermentation. The wine is 100% matured for fourteen months in one year old French Oak barrels with limited lees stirring.
