Brilliant straw green colour.
Unmistakable chardonnay –white fleshed nectarine, lemon citrus, river stones and hints of flint. Compact, balanced with no single element sticking out. Oak a whisper.
Palate wise there’s peach skin phenolics adding crunch and texture and a wonderful line of lemon-citrus acidity running the length of the wine, which pulls it neatly together adding persistence of flavour. Modern, unforced, refreshing.
Harvested in late February 2015, Vintage conditions were close to ideal.Handpicked and whole bunch pressed into 500L puncheons for fermentation with indigenous yeast for approx 14-20 days at 15-20*C. This chardonnay was mostly sourced from vineyards inColdstream, Woori Yallock, Gladysdale and Wandin using handpicked grapes and crafted using traditional methods.
A warm spring and mild summer has resulted in excellent crops and ideal harvesting conditions. The wines have outstanding depth of flavour and structure.
