Pale golden yellow.
Intense complex notes of pear, apple, nectarine and lemon blossom, balanced with some minerality and a hint of oak.
A seamless integration of stone fruit and lemon and lime, full bodied mouth filling richness, with hints of oak on the long finish.
2021 was one of those rare vintages where we experienced both big tonnes of fruit and incredible quality and flavour. The Chardonnay enjoyed the cooler conditions and we at various times throughout the season. Gradual ripening allowing fruit to span the full spectrum of flavours from citrus through to tropical.
The fruit from the Greenstone vineyard is grown on vines over 35 years old and provide the lovely mid palate peachy fruits in our wild fermented Chardonnay. The Strathbogie component is from our Upton Run block 16 and provides a rich mineral complexity. All fruit was picked in the cool of the early morning and processed immediately so as to protect the subtle varietal flavours, then left
to wild ferment in oak barrels.
