A total coverage amounting to nine hectares of prime Mornington viticulture, are fastiduously husbanded to yield nothing but the most exceptional quality harvests. Vertically shoot positioned, estate grown fruit, forms the backbone, supplemented by choice parcels grown to mature local vines. Chardonnay is gently whole bunch pressed directly into French oak barriques for a wild, indigenous yeast vinification, followed by ten months maturation sur lie and minimal filtration before bottling.
Bright straw lime colour. A delicate, aromatic nose showing grapefruit and lime, hints of fresh ginger, soft layers of cream and quartz silica minerality. The palate is pure and fine with some flintiness. A Clonale that is pert and linear in youth but with the lees creaminess in place to build texture and weight as it evolves.
