The Chardonnay grapes were hand picked and static whole bunch pressed directly into barrel. All oak consisted of French barriques with approximately one third new, and the remainder one and two year old. Fermentation was carried out in barrel, with small proportions of wild ferment and malolactic fermentation for enhanced texture and depth. Barriques are stirred weekly to give palate weight and complexity. The wine spent approximately 12 months in oak, before being lightly fined and filtered. Sealed under Screw-cap to enable the wine to be enjoyed at its optimum.
Bright grapefruit & nectarine with subtle walnut characters. Rich stonefruit palate with fresh citrus like acidity. Elegant, persistent and ageworthy

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale green straw
Bright grapefruit, white blossom and nectarine. Underlying hints of crushed walnuts and peaches & cream, with a distinctive struck match character.
Rich stone-fruits of nectarine and white peach, combine with an intense citrus minerality. These classical cool climate Chardonnay characters are balanced with fresh natural acidity creating focus and length. Juicy lees complexity and toasty undertones provide a layered complex flavour profile.
This Chardonnay is ready to enjoy now but the structure and natural cool climate acidity should enable confident cellaring until 2022.
Full flavoured fish and rich poultry dishes.
