The 2019 season on the Mornington Peninsula was a classic. Ripening was even and the wines have great intensity and depth of flavour.
Beautifully focused and fine, this is a lovely modern expression of Mornington Peninsula chardonnay.
The fruit was hand harvested between 28 February and 7 March, and pressed in small batches before it was left to settle overnight. French oak barrels (500 litre puncheons) were used for fermentation (no malolatic). All wild ferments. The wine was aged on yeast lees for 10 months, and bottled in December 2019. (Alc 13%)
Bright intense pale straw colour. Lifted aromas of clean citrus notes, stone fruit and a subtle hint of spicy French oak. A tightly focused palate, with lovely balance and a long, complex finish.
