Description

Full bright straw with green tints. The bead is persistent and very fine. Aromas of brioche, lanolin, and wet stones present immediately, then a layer of stone fruit, flint, struck match and a forest floor/sous bois note. It changing, complex, volumous. Almost musky. The palate belies this depth as it is light on its feet – athletic not muscular, with core of candied green apple and white stone fruit corseted by a fine, lacey, lemon-citrus acidity that stretches the wine out to a savoury dry finish. Moreish, complex and elegant at the same time.

Winemaking Notes

Chardonnay made using traditional methods – fermented in bottle and aged on yeast lees for 44 months prior to disgorging in June 2016 with minimal dosage.

Growing Conditions

Local Vineyard Series
The Yarra Valley has three distinct geographic zones or sub-regions - lower warmer, middle cool and higher cooler sub-regions. We have matched particular varieties with the specific sites to give you outstanding examples of single vineyard wines.

Vintage
A wonderful growing season with abundant rainfall, moderate crops and warm ripening conditions has resulted in wines that are deeply flavoured and intensely varietal.
