Our 2019 Chardonnay is reflective of the hot and dry season. A more textural wine compared to the previous year, displays notes of tropical fruits and melon. Not overpowered by oak and influenced by partial-malolactic fermentation. This Chardonnay has potential to cellar for 10+ years and is best enjoyed at 7-10 degrees celcius

Picked in March 2019 – a very hot and dry summer! Fermented on Bordeaux French oak (20% new) over 8 months with a further maturation in stainless tank for for an additional 2 months. A mixture of wild-yeast and inoculation. Crushed & de-stemmed and Bottled Jan 2020. Un-fined and un-filtered – Vegan Friendly.
