Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from the Henty and Cotterill blocks planted to the Mendoza or Gin Gin clone in 1998.
The Dragonfly Chardonnay is designed to capture the essence of this noble variety in its pure form. Vibrant and refreshing in style, it highlights the classic white-fleshed stonefruit and almond blossom characters of the variety, combined with the texture, complexity and depth of flavour achieved from the better vineyard sites of the southwest.
Half of the wine was naturally fermented in pre- loved French oak barriques to build complexity, whilst the balance was fermented in tank and saw no oak at all. Temperature in oak is allowed to peak at 22 degrees celsius, whilst tank fermentation is maintained at less than 15 degrees celsius.
2015 vintage is dedicated to Willow Bridge late Senior Winemaker, Simon Burnell.
