Tasting Notes

colour

Pale gold in colour.

aroma

White nectarine and grapefruit nuances are evident on the nose with supportive spicy new French oak.

palate

There is a deliciously dry, crisp acidity here with nectarine, white peach and grapefruit flavours. The wine has intensity, power and richness with a vanillin oak finish – wonderful line and length.

cellaring

Drink now or cellar for 5–10 years.

Technical


vintage

The 2017 growing season in the Geographe region was atypically late which allowed for gentle and even ripening of all varieties. The Chardonnay grapes were sourced from select vineyards in this region. These vineyards produce extremely flavoursome fruit with tannins that are both fleshy and ripe.

winemaking

The fruit was hand-picked and chilled overnight. It was then whole bunch pressed directly to 80% new and 20% one-year-old French barriques without settling. The juice was fermented using wild yeasts at low temperatures.The wine remained on yeast, with stirring performed fortnightly for eight weeks before racking and blending in October 2017. The finished wine was minimally fined and bottled in December 2017. The finished wine was minimally fined and bottled in December 2018.

ned goodwin, halliday wine companion 2020

This estate boasts an entrenched skill with whites. A nose of toasted hazelnuts, nougatine and creamed cashew kick off proceedings. The palate is mid-weighted and dutifully stone fruit creamy, while paying homage to the linear thrust of modern styling. Very good.
