Rich straw yellow.
Complex aromas of white peach balanced with soft notes of oak, savoury cream and hints of minerality.
Sophisticated, cool climate Chardonnay with rich stone fruit and elegant oak maturation characters. Seamless integration of fruit, oak and acidity gives a mouth filling richness on the finish.
2019 was an excellent year all round. Yields were very low and intense flavours developed across all varieties. We use a diversity of individual wines in barrel to work for this blend. The blending of this wine is always the most exciting event in our winemaking calendar. The fruit from the Greenstone vineyard provides the lovely mid palate peachy fruits in the wine. The Strathbogie component providing a mineral complexity.
As always with our wild ferment Chardonnay, we have a rich diversity of individual wines in barrel to work for this blend. There are many types of French barrels used to mature this wine. Each cooper, or “Tonnelier” provide its own unique flavours. The combination of all these variables is what makes this wine of great complexity and quality.
