Vineyard Notes
Our first vintage of Chardonnay, grown from grafts, handpicked and hand sorted. Gin Gin clone.
Winemaking
Whole fruit pressed before fermentation and maturation on gross lees in 30% new, 70% two to three year-old French oak barriques for 11 months with three weekly battonage. Partial malo-lactic fermentation (30%)
Tasting Notes
The nose exhibits intense grapefruit, stone fruit and citrus with an underlying spice and cashew nut richness from the French oak. It is a dry, fresh and flavour intense wine produced in the modern style. Flavours of melon, white stone fruits and toasted cashew nut abound and are supremely integrated and balanced with the French oak. A very long and enjoyable finish.
