FRUIT

This Chardonnay was grown on mature vines with an average of 40 years on limestone soils.  The result is a wine with lively fruit intensity and good acid balance. The 2016 vintage was picked in three distinctly different parcels of ripeness.  Layered complexity of green apple/citrus, peach and tropical diversity are in a refreshing and vibrant style. 

WINEMAKING

The richness of the fruit in its natural state meant that minimal intervention was required in the winery.  Separate parcels were left on skins for some time in order to develop the keen tannin structure, then fermented in stainless steel.    

COLOUR

Pale straw with lemon yellow tinge

AROMA

Freshly cut white peach and jack fruit with perfumed pomelo and citrus blossom highlight this vintage of Chardonnay.

PALATE

A refreshing palate of stone fruits and melon with a creamy mouthfeel and lingering finish.

Served chilled with chargrilled fish, fresh salads and stir fry dishes.
