colour

Bright gold with a fresh green rim.

aroma

Ripe stone fruit, melon and pear with intense shortbread and brioche notes.

palate

Creamy peaches fill the mouth, with lovely shortbread and brioche flavours adding richness and complexity. This full flavoured wine is a classic style that rewards the palate with long flavours and length.

cellaring

Will drink beautifully from release, but continue to develop over the next three years.

vintage

A prolonged cool and wet growing season led to later maturity and, therefore, later harvest dates for many varieties. This produced beautifully aromatic Chardonnay fruit with great intensity and high natural acidity. A late spell of dry and warm conditions throughout April allowed the fruit to reach perfect ripeness before harvesting. 

winemaking

Cool, cloudy juice went into used French oak barriques and puncheons direct from the press where it was wild fermented to impart textural complexity, savoury elements and overall house style to the wine. On completion of a warm fermentation, each barrel went into a cool barrel hall where they were topped and stirred fortnightly for six months until bottled.
