Enticing struck match, cashew, citrus, stone fruit and oak aromas lead forth. The palate is rich and intense and firm through the middle. White peach and nectarine from the first sip with grapefruit, nutty oak, smoke and lemon rind. An altogether stunning single vineyard expression of Australian Chardonnay.
Alcohol: 13% vol.
Best Drinking: Drinking well in its youth, but will get better over the next 5 years
100% Chardonnay fruit sourced from a single vineyard in the cool climate region of Adelaide Hills.
Fermentation was cool and long with some lees stirring. French oak, puncheons and hogsheads were used to impart character.
