The fruit was handpicked on 23rd and 24th March 2017, whole-bunch pressed and transferred to barrel for alcoholic fermentation with specially selected yeasts to optimise the Chardonnay flavour profile while adding interest and depth.
Approximately 29% of the wine was put through malolactic fermentation to bring enhanced and softened texture. Both the MLF and the non-malo portions were blended, and aged in quality 100% French oak (34% new) for 10 months sur lie, with frequent stirring to release important flavour components.
Stringent barrel selection followed in February 2018 to compose the final wine, before bottling under screwcap on 19 March 2018.
This distinguished single vineyard Chardonnay exudes presence and finesse. The palate is wonderfully mouth-filling and creamy, with intense peach and apricot flavours in harmony with fine French oak seasoning, leading to a satisfyingly long soft and spicy finish. Instantly appealing, enjoy now or allow to
age gracefully with careful cellaring.
