A small parcel of carefully tended vines of Chardonnay fruit was harvested from the Tolley Vineyard in Woodside on the 5th March 2019.
Hand-picked grapes were gently whole bunch pressed to seasoned French oak barrels using free-run juice only. A high solid, wild fermentation followed, giving the wine texture and complexity. The wine underwent Malo-lactic fermentation with weekly batonage (stirring) for approximately 9 months before bottling.
A complex bouquet with stone fruit aromas. Using quality French oak (20% new), layers of texture persist with white flesh, peach flavour and a hint of citrus acidity. A medium-full bodied style with subtle and restrained oak.
Ensuring freshness and longevity.
