Chardonnay vines were planted in 1985 to light gravelly loam soils atop Woodland's south facing slope. The Gingin/ Mendoza clone was first choice, famous for it's hen and chicken bunchset, delivering low yields with higher levels of acidity and great intensity of flavour. Grapes are hand picked at ripe and healthy baumes, each batch is separately destemmed through an advanced vibrating hopper and pressed into French oak for a luxurious course of barrel ferments, enhancing intensity of fruit while achieving a more complex flavour profile. Upon completion, most batches are racked, a third of the wine remains in barrel. Come September, components are racked and assembled for filtration and bottling.
Intense straw hue. Layers of stonefruit and lime, nectarines and pear, mineral notes and struck flint over subtle French oak. The palate is balanced and refined, showing great poise and finesse, stonefruits and citrus, mineral and flint over delightful French oak, finishing with a vibrant crisp texture from the bright natural acidity. A rich, full bodied wine with excelent retention of natural freshness.
