Yarra Valley has been producing distinctive and elegant Charadonnay wines since early settlement. On the higher, leaner soils of Sexton, vine roots explore deep and grapes ripen steadily, naturally checking their vigour. A close husbanding and intensive maintenance is essential to yield the most intensely flavoured grapes. Fruit is all picked and pressed as whole bunches, chilled and transferred to seasoned and new French oak barriques and puncheons. Indigenous yeasts and small amounts of cultured yeasts initiate ferments, barrels are treated to a regimen of lees stirring battonage over the course of nine months maturation.
Bright, light straw colour. Nose displaying lemon zest and cashew, white peach blossoms and river stones. Granny smith and grapefruit flavours, kernel and cashews, bright crunchy acidity, the savouryness of chicken stock. Oily lemon pith, lime zests and biscuit, before a lingering finish of viscous minerality. To accompany Sunday chicken, Moreton Bay bugs or freshly rolled pasta with basil.
