Winemakers Comments

Ample winter rainfall and a mild spring allowed for a great start to the season, with a decent canopy developing which provided adequate protection for, and capacity to, ripen the fruit. As the season progressed, short frequent irrigations ensured the lean soils retained enough moisture. The ripening seasoned allowed for steady ripening along with the retention of acidity that is so crucial to Chardonnay. The fruit was crushed and pressed off skins immediately on arrival to the winery. The juice was cold settled, before being racked, with a portion of the lighter fluffier solids taken across with the clear juice, before being separated into two stainless steel fermenters. Each fermenter was then inoculated with a different yeast. Once fermenting the two parcels were then transferred into a combination of new and used French oak. Partial malolactic fermentation, coupled with regular battonage, helped build the delicious creamy texture in this wine. - Jules Ashmead and Brock Harrison
