Parcels of Gin Gin Chardonnay clone are harvested throughout the cool of night, pressed, crushed and filled into a selection of predominantly older French oak barrels for inoculation by a mix of cultured and wild indigenous yeasts. The balance of the harvest is crushed and destemmed, chilled before pressing and transferred to fermenters. The settled juices are coolly vinified at 15°C through the action of aromatic strains of yeast to retain bright varietal characteristics. All components are lees stirred throughout several months of barrel maturation, to be assembled into the finished wine in November, judicious use of oak plays a supporting role. Alcohol 14.0%
