NOSE

PALATE

Shows some upfront fine mineral and crisp flavours which persists throughout the palate. The mid palate shows some restrained generous buttery notes and roast almonds. The palate overall is pure and tightly balanced with a touch of residual sweetness.

WINEMAKING

The Chardonnay grapes were gently harvested in the cool of the morning, destemmed and pressed directly to barrels. Natural fermentation in barrels commenced after 3 to 4 days, and once dry batonage was undertaken periodically over the 9 months the wines were in barrel. 20% of the blend was put through Malo-lactic fermentation to introduce some added complexity and buttery flavours. In late November the barrels were emptied, the wine stabilised and bottled.

FOOD PAIRING
Poached / steamed marron, crayfish shellfish, rich fish salmon tuna cod, creamy pasta.
