The grapes for this wine were picked from our 40 year old vines grown in the volcanic soil of the ancient Fordwich Sill. These low yielding mature vines produce ripe, concentrated fruit which results in a wine with excellent regional and varietal characters. To achieve subtle oak integration, this wine was partially matured in new French barriques for 6 months for added complexity and richness.

Winery Tasting Notes
The 2012 Chardonnay is gold green in colour
The wine exhibits a complex bouquet of grapefruit and melon with hints of well-integrated subtle nutty oak aromas.
The palate is textured and offers an attractive mouth feel with great structure, richness and balance. It is beautifully balanced with a long, lingering finish.
Enjoy as a young wine and over the next 3 -5 years with careful cellaring.
