WINEMAKING

Our philosophy is to craft a chardonnay of great purity, reflecting our site and the season in which it was grown. It’s the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing that expression.

Each parcel of chardonnay was carefully handpicked between 4-8 March, in pristine condition. Every parcel was handled separately in the winery, with minimal intervention. The chardonnay was crushed, pressed and transferred with solids, into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons (20% new) to undergo natural fermentation. It was then left to mature on lees for 11 months, without malolatic fermentation proceeding until bottling in February 2018. 

 

Tasting note

Defined by its citrus blossom aromatic lift and precise long, lingering finish.  Characteristic pristine, pure and intense aroma. The palate is poised and complex. Tightly wound together with a precise minerality, the wine has beautiful line and length.
