Select premium vineyards were chosen for their intense varietal flavour and picked at their peak.
Drought, fire and flood, followed by plague. The 2020 vintage threw everything at us, fortunately the smoke did not reach the Riverina and impact the fruit. The drought again impacted us with a dry winter and early spring. Thus resulting in some restriction of growth and yield. Leading to good quality fruit. Harvest began 7 Days later than the previous few years beginning after Australia Day.
Very pale straw with a green tinge. Tight and bright early picked peach and melon notes carried on a weighty palate, culminating in a fresh and crisp finish with the most interesting of oak nuances.
Medium bodied, seriously delicious Australian Chardonnay!
This wine was fermented cool over a two week period. Selected parcels were fermented with the inclusion of French oak. Once fermentation was complete the wines were matured on fine yeast lees over 3 months to build palate weight.
