A fresh Chardonnay with appealing oak influences, pure ripely scented citrus and crunchy stone fruit characters. We made several passes in the vineyard to obtain a range of ripeness levels and to add complexity. Embellished with layers of flavour from extended time on yeast lees and creaminess from full malolactic fermentations, all wrapped around a smooth texture with a clean crisp finish. Will accompany your seafood, white meats and salads perfectly.
Made from a combination of different subregions and vineyards carefully selected for quality and flavour. The fruit was harvested and pressed quickly with minimal winemaking intervention to preserve fruit flavour. Once clear juice is racked off, a combination of selected and wild yeast is used for fermentation. Maturation on light yeast lees adds texture and flavour which is balanced by fresh natural acidity from the grapes. Bottled under screw cap to maintain freshness and integrity of the wine through to your glass.
