Trial and success with growing the original Burgundian clones have led to a complex and elegant wine with rich, creamy flavour and tangy acidity.

The Details

Tasting Note Flavours of fresh stone fruit and citrus curd are underpinned by fresh grapefruit acidity and a fine creamy texture. Showing finer restraint than usual, this wine will continue to build extra complexity and richness with further time in bottle.
Best Enjoyed With Enjoy with crispy-skinned salmon fillet and Asian greens or chickpea falafel.
Treatment Around 50% of the blend was fermented and matured in new (10% of the final blend) and 1-3 year old fine-grained French barriques to add weight and texture, with the balance of the wine fermented in stainless steel to retain fruit freshness and vibrancy.

Accolades

Solid, varietal Chardonnay notes with complexity
Bright in the glass, vivid green highlights. Solid, varietal Chardonnay notes with complexity from nutty cashew cream lift, sliced white stone fruit, a touch of smoky char and grapefruit juice. Youthful nervy acidity trying to find its feet, picking its way through just mid weight creamy richness. Has a hollow halo of texture and acidity through the close that will slowly be filled with development.

Fresh floral/apple fragrances.
Interesting lifted fresh floral/apple fragrances. Tightly structured, complex palate with crunchy texture.
