Chardonnay is harvested at ripe and healthy baumes, grapes are crushed and two thirds of the juices are vinified in a mix of new and one year old French oak barrels, a moderate proportion is wild yeast fermented for greater complexity. Barrel components are matured on yeast lees for several months, developing a rich creamy palate. The balance is vinified in fermenters at moderate temperatures to retain maximum fruit character. Components are assembled and the final wine is returned to oak for a spell of integration, integrating flavours and enhancing the structure prior to bottling.
Pale golden hue. Golden peach, nectarine and honey notes over creamy yeast and subtle biscuity oak for a rich complex bouquet. A rich fruity palate showing golden peach, apricot and pineapple flavours. The textural oak frame surrounds dollops of creamy butter, honey and toast, a crisp mandarine finish completing a complex, restrained and balanced wine.
