Chardonnay is sourced from estate blocks and the Upper Ngumby vineyard, all planted at the foot of Christmas Hills range. Hand picked grapes showing outstanding acid balance and varietal character are the basis for the wine, harvested on the very day they achieve maximum ripeness. Fruit is whole bunch pressed, juices are treated to a day of cold soak, followed by racking into a selection of seasoned and new 300L French oak hogsheads, 500L French oak puncheons and controlled fermenters. Batches are vinified on gross solids to infuse savouryness and complexity. Upon completion, components are aged nine months on sedimentery lees before assemblage into the finished wine.
Pale lemon with green hues. A very attractive wine offering a panoply of white peach and citrus, brioche and light oak caramel cashew oak inflenced aromatics. Flavours of stonefruit, nectarine and peach, limes, crisp apple and grapefruit are complimented by toastyness stemming from the judicious time spent in oak.
