Building up towards harvest, our vineyards experience a fresh, late afternoon southerly breeze, which has a cooling effect allowing the grapes to ripen evenly and preserve fruit flavour. Whole bunch pressed and settled overnight, the juice was then racked and pumped into stainless steel tanks for the primary fermentation. After fermentation the wine was left on its lees under controlled temperatures, with weekly stirring to boost flavour and mid-palate development. Selected yeast strains were used to elevate the fruit-profile of Chardonnay fruit.
The wine has an herbaceous character, and its subtle aroma displays celery and gunflint. It's light and fresh, with a mineral texture holding mild notes of lime and white grapefruit. Good acidity extends hints of grass and citrus flavors into the finish.
