vintage

2018 was a beautiful, mild vintage with very limited heat spikes during ripening. Chardonnay grapes were harvested in early to mid-February, which encouraged expressive aromas, concentrated flavours and lovely acid retention.

winemaking

The majority of the fruit for this wine was handpicked, with a proportion wild fermented in oak barrels, 20% of which were new, for three months. The remaining parcels of fruit were kept on lees, with wild fermentation occurring in stainless steel tanks. From there, 50% of the final blend underwent malolactic fermentation before bottling.
