Blend
100% Chardonnay

This wine hails from Block 5 at the top of our Home Block Vineyard. This was our first year farming it organically. What used to be a vigorous, heavy canopy quickly showed a big change due to the changes in farming practices. As a result, the fruit developed riper flavours, but less sugar than it had in past years. This wine was fermented wild in puncheons and French oak barrels for structure, and our team encouraged a malolactic component to add softness.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Riper, richer flavours of pineapple and mango with a backbone of vibrant acidity. Energetic with depth and presence.
Vineyard Notes
A wet spring led to a later start, however, the 2017 season was hotter and more compressed than normal. The season brought smaller berry size, clusters and yields. Fruit quality was excellent, characterized by high flavour concentration, moderate alcohol, balanced tannins, complexity and natural acidity.
Winemaker Notes
Enjoy now or cellar until 2025
Food Pairing Notes
Asparagus risotto with lemon, butter, Parmesan and marjoram.
