VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

This Chardonnay was picked in pristine conditions in mid-February 2020. The fruit was destemmed and pressed, the juice transferred directly into French 225l barriques and temperature controlled to ensure a slow fermentation process with a mix of natural (wild) yeast and cultured yeasts which gave rise to the development of complex flavours and textural weight. Post-fermentation the lees were stirred gently weekly until the balance between oak, lees and fruit characters was achieved. No malo-lactic fermentation was carried out with all the natural acidity preserved. Bottled October 2020.

THE WINE

The wine shows a lifted bouquet of stonefruit and citrus with an underlay of toasty spice. The palate displays nice citrus flavours supported by barrel ferment characters which add complexity and add to the long flavoursome finish.

Love a good Chardy and this one is full of peachy undertones, buttery with a hint of vanilla. We love it by the case!

The wine exhibits a pale straw lemon colour with an attractive promise of citrus on the nose. It is an elegant and restrained wine with nuances of liqueur gooseberries and melon. Flinty and less buttery than some traditional Chardonnays but nonetheless, a voluptuous tasting weight to a full lingering finish , it adds great expression to oysters and fish.
