The Chardonnay is grown on the slopes of our home block. The south-west facing slope allow free drainage and frost management for these vines. Ideally located to receive maximum sun exposure in the Creston Valley.
Hand harvested fruit was whole bunch pressed. The wine went through primary ferment in 500L French barrel puncheons. Complete malolactic fermentation followed by the wine being racked off solids before with a further 11 months maturation in French oak.
Lifted aromas of citrus and melon. The palate exhibits fine integrated toasty oak. A supple palate with real depth of flavour of toffee, almond and biscuit.
