vintage

The 2017 growing season in Western Australia was atypically late, allowing for optimum ripeness to be achieved in this Chardonnay while retaining fresh, vibrant, fruit flavours.

Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented in French barriques (50% new), matured on lees for 6 months. A striking chardonnay with 8 g/l of acidity driving the palate at breakneck speed before it settles down, but the same theme continues with citrus allsorts (lemon, grapefruit and lime) that should by rights make you think of Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling. But you don't, for the Chardonnay birthmark is burnt into the heart of the wine.
