Good winter rains and a warm spring resulted in a fantastic start to vintage. A series of very warm weather events put pressure on the early growing season, but the well managed vineyards made it through. A vintage of two halves; the first half of heat waves put pressure on winemakers and viticulturists alike, the second half allowed fruit to be picked at the optimum flavour ripeness.
Fruit was picked in the cool of the night with some skin contact to give the wine body and flavour. A cool to warm ferment using French oak. Maturation on lees post fermentation to give richness and depth to the wine.
Melons and lychees with subtle savoury oak
A full bodied Chardonnay that packs a lot of flavour into whatever glass you serve it in. This wine has melon and peaches on the mid palate with fine structure and a soft acid finish
