Light golden straw.
White peach and stone fruit, with mandarin, lemon and a hint of flinty oak.
Medium bodied with flavours of fresh nectarine, grapefruit and pear, with a soft, creamy palate complimented by textural oak.
In 2021 our Chardonnay enjoyed the cooler conditions and produced a good fruit yield with fantastic fruit flavours and great acid retention.
This Chardonnay was harvested in early March 2021, with 85% of fruit coming from block 16 of our Upton Run vineyard. Grapes were harvested using a selective harvester, in the cool of the night, so as to retain the delicate fruit flavours. A large portion of this vintage was wild fermented in stainless steel to preserve the fantastic varietal characteristics, then transferred into older oak barrels to create a complex, yet fresh wine with plenty of stone fruit flavours.
