This wine displays complex aromas of classic stone fruit and citrus, leading to a creamy mid-palate and crisp finish. A modern Australian Chardonnay influenced by the classics.
Handpicked premium fruit from select Adelaide Hills Vineyards has been gently whole bunch pressed direct to premium French oak. Fermentation was conducted by wild yeasts followed by lees stirring and maturation for 9 months.
Awards and Accolades
2016 Vintage: 91 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion "Burgundy clones 76 and 95, and Mendoza, from three vineyards, fermented on full solids in French puncheons (25% new) with partial mlf, matured for 9 months. Super elegant, light to medium-bodied with white-flesh stone fruits to fruit fore; a crisp finish, the oak in a pure support role."
