Under the insistence of chief winemaker Chester Osborn, each components is separately handled. Parcels are crushed and cold soaked on skins at 2°C for a day prior to basket pressing, gentle extraction of juices are critical to retain delicate fruit characters. Batches are fermented and matured in a mixture of French and American oak for seven months, bottled immediately upon completion for optimal retention of fresh, natural acidity, so integral to the balance and longevity of the wine.
Pale straw hues. Attractive array of nectarine and granny smith, vanilla, spice and mildly roasted nuts. The palate has an initial hit of creaminess, quite strong in stone fruit and white flowers. Mid palate reverts to a more streamline shape as seaspray and nutty nuances emerge. The finish is long and dry, with just a whisper of vanillan, a lovely modern style of Chardonnay.
