The Venus Block derives its name from the first name of the woman who ran a grazing property on the land for many years. Situated at our high altitude vineyard in Orange, the 'Venus Block' is 800m above sea level, ensuring a long cool ripening season, perfectly suited to Chardonnay.

From the high-altitude estate-owned vineyard in Orange; bright straw-green, it has the fig aromas that are highly prized by some winemakers and critics; on the palate the fig is joined by sumptuous peach and nectarine fruit, the package supported by fine French oak.

Winery Tasting Notes
The 2010 vintage is an intense cool climate Chardonnay with flavours of stone fruits, fig and melon seductively integrated with barrel ferment complexity. A crisp and elegant style of Chardonnay, showing great purity of fruit.
