Harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed, de-stemmed, must chilled and de-juiced. The juice was allowed to cold settle for 36 hours and subsequently racked off, upon which an aromatic yeast was introduced for fermentation. The ferment was halted early to aid in preserving the natural grape sugars and to add body and enhanced fruit character to the finished wine.

Pale straw-green; a well-made, light to medium-bodied commercial chardonnay with stone fruits and citrus making equal contributions to the gently fruity flavours. Rating 87 – Drink by 2017, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
Chardonnay from the cool south west of Western Australia can stand alone with its lifted tropical fruit aromas of pineapple, peach, apple, and melon.
Clean, fresh palate displaying citrus and stone fruit characters. The texture and depth are typical of a cool climate West Australian Chardonnay and follows on with a long and crisp finish.
Pan-fried baby snapper, baked eggplant with tomato and basil. Also good with mild cheddars such as Caerphilly and Wensleydale, mild Gouda and Edam.
