These grapes were harvested by hand with specific timing that incorporated ripe fruit flavours and fresh acidity. We hand harvested and whole cluster pressed the grapes in our gentle bladder press. A long, slow press cycle was used to allow maximum juice yield without compromising flavour extraction. The juice was cold settled in a stainless tank before racking into barrels for alcoholic and malolactic fermentations. The barrels were carefully monitored and tasted for 10 months, before any sulphur additions took place. After aging was complete, specific barrels were selected and blended back into tank. This special blend was gently fined and lightly filtered to preserve the wine without stripping the flavours and textures, before bottling.


Straw with a clear hue.


A focused aroma of citrus, green apple and oak, which unite with underlying notes of vanilla, wet stone and Bartlett pear.  A lifted toasty note and hint of butter also shine. Finally, subtle underlying aromas of biscuit, golden plums and lemongrass complete this intense aromatic profile.


This fresh and round wine is clean, fruity and bright. There are a medley of fruits that drive the palate; lemon and pineapple, green apple, plum and pear. A focused and full mouthfeel that mirrors the aromatics. Barrel toast, vanilla, cream and wet stone are the focus of flavour on the palate. The mid-palate delivers layers of texture and integration of vanilla, toast, biscuit and tree fruits. A Chardonnay with bolstering balance and a smooth, medium-long finish of crisp acidity that lingers and refreshes.
