Description

Aroma // Ripe lemon, cashew and fig.
Palate // The texture is refreshing and elegant with subtle toasty and creamy notes from the oak barrel influence. Fruit flavours of citrus, nectarine and white peach sit alongside a softly balanced acid structure.
Cellaring // Our Chardonnays have a habit of ageing well, a window of 3-6 years is suggested to provide a mix of fruit freshness and aging complexity.

Winemaking

Hand picked over seven separate passes before gentle whole cluster pressing. Free run full solids juice is fermented entirely in barrels with around 75% being natural fermentation. After 11 months on full lees the barrels are selected and blended prior to bottling.
