From a select group of vineyards in Margaret River and the Great Southern which experience wonderful ripening conditions, yielding harvests of Chardonnay with exceptionally fine acidity. Grapes are hand picked and refrigerated overnight. Fruit is manually sorted to eliminate any damaged berries before a whole bunch press of the purest, most elegant, clean free runs into a selection of seasoned and new, French oak barriques, hogsheads and puncheons for fermentation by indigenous vineyard yeasts. A regimen of lees stirring battonage is followed by a course of malolactic and nine months maturation on gross solids. Components are assembled and treated to a minimal fining filtration.
Pale straw in colour with bright green hue at the rim. A defined bouquet of grapefruit and white nectarines with underlying hints of cashew nut and fresh oyster shell. Fermentation to indigenous yeast in French oak barriques provides a creamy texture with flavours of almond meal, honeyed apricots and fresh figs. A crisp acidity combined with some gun flint mineral complexities adds to this contemporary and sophisticated style.
