A superb example of new style Chardonnay from a very cool site showing a complex Bouquet of intense cool climate characters, crisp acidity and silky mouth-feel.
Winemaking involves wild and cultured yeast, allied with French oak barrels from several suppliers and forests, together with extended cool temperature post-fermentation development.
“Deep gold, green hue; the bouquet is full of Meyer lemon, biscuit dough and grilled hazelnuts; the palate reveals taut acidity and a saline minerality that sits neatly alongside the moderately long grilled nut conclusion.”
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014
