More so than any other, Chardonnay is a quintessential winemaker’s wine – one where the decisions of the winemaker are most in evidence. Of course, in our case, it helps to have carefully-tended estate grown fruit to work with. We pick it early for a citrus and mineral flavour profile, and ferment 100% naturally in 100 separate vessels including foudres, puncheons, barriques, stainless steel and concrete. How that ferment unfolds dictates the direction of the finished wine. In 2016, the wine presented elegantly and pure in disposition, as refined in the glass as the decisions that led to its creation.

Tasting Notes
Brilliant and vivid with rich texture. Wild fermented. Picked early for a fresh green apple profile. A hint of stone fruit and just a whiff of matchstick.
