With aro­mas of in­tense grape­fruit and white peach, a con­cen­tra­tion of cit­rus and stone fruit on the palate and lin­ger­ing mouth-fill­ing fin­ish, this wine bal­ances fruit, oak and acid­ity.

What de­fines your style of chardon­nay?

Our vineyard ripens very slowly while main­tain­ing its nat­u­ral acid­ity. We de­ter­mine the ideal pick­ing time to pro­duce cool-cli­mate chardon­nay giv­ing a well­bal­anced wine with power and fi­nesse that tra­verses modern and tra­di­tional styles.

What tech­niques do you use for this wine?

Af­ter press­ing, the wine spent eight months in half new and half sec­ond-use French oak, with lees stir­ring at weekly in­ter­vals dur­ing the first six months, fol­lowed by par­tial mal­o­lac­tic fer­men­ta­tion (about 20 per cent) to de­velop mouth­feel.
