From 30 year old vines comes this complex, layered Chardonnay. Flavours of citrus and nectarine complement the struck match / mealy notes. Ideal alongside richer white meat dishes.

2015 Vintage: 92 Points, Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front "It sits up straight in the glass. Stone fruits meet spice, meal and chalk, a steely stare of acid-borne flavour then reaching out through the finish. It’s not excessively lean but it certainly feels linear and direct. Grapefruit characters – juice, rind and blossom – make a charge as the wine opens up with air. A creaminess to the texture helps pull the wine together. As with the ‘standard’ chardonnay this needs time to shows itself at its best."
From the Winery
A cool climate and complex Chardonnay, which has been barrel fermented in French oak, 28% of which was new. Complexity was enhanced by natural ferment, high juice solids during fermentation and leaving the wine on yeast lees in barrel for 10 months
An extremely complex and layered chardonnay, exhibiting cool climate fruit characters of citrus, and nectarine. The French oak is harmoniously integrated into the mealy and struck match complexing characters.
This wine is fresh and vibrant with great complexity and richness. The citrus and nectarine fruits flow into textured and layered mid palate, of crème brulee and mealy notes. The French oak is subtle in the background; the palate is held beautifully together and structured by seamless natural acidity. The complex flavours linger thanks to a long, fine, citrus finish
Enjoy with a wide range of pasta and white meat dishes.
Will continue to improve and develop complexity with age; cellar for 5 to 8 years
