A complex and powerful perfume, bursting with aromas of white nectarine, citrus freshness, with and a hint of grilled almonds. This is a refined, subtle Chardonnay. On the palate, it’s full of white stone fruit, complex nutty minerality/flintiness. All of this is perfectly balanced by the richness of high quality French oak, luscious and mouthwatering, juicy fruit. It has a creamy texture, and a crisp tight finish, making it a good example of elegant restrained Chardonnay that carries the complex flavours for remarkable length.
Hand picked grapes in 4 separate stages, ranging from 11.6 to 11.8 Baumé. All batches were whole bunch pressed. Juice with solids was transferred to French Vosges oak barriques to achieve more intense ferment characters and palate weight. Each batch was ‘wild/natural’ fermented. After ferment, a portion of the barrels were stirred twice weekly, allowing the yeast lees to further impart texture, complexity and palate weight to the wine.
