2019 Vintage

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.

A warm summer with resultant early harvest, produced wines that have great intensity, detailed structure and excellent depth of flavour.

WINEMAKING

Each parcel of chardonnay was carefully handpicked between 27 February - 1 March, in pristine condition. Every parcel was handled separately in the winery, with minimal intervention. The chardonnay was whole bunch 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 12 months, without malolatic fermentation proceeding. Barrels transferred to tank for a further 4 months on lees until bottling in early June 2020.  

 

Tasting note

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

Stored carefully, the wine will age gracefully for at least eight years.
