Our second vintage of Chardonnay, grown from grafts, handpicked and hand sorted. Gin Gin clone.
Grown on 2 separate blocks. One on the eastern boundary of the vineyard, the other near the western bound.
Treated as 2 separate batches for the whole process. Whole fruit pressed, light juice settling, and transferred to barrel for fermentation
3 different yeasts used to add complexity and texture. No MLF.
Following fermentation, the wine stays in barrel until mid January the next year. Battonage is monthly. The batches were then blended before bottling. Minimally fined and filtered.
This is a centred, precise and very textural Chardonnay coming out of an exceptional vintage.
