“An aromatic, complex, textured and elegant style of Chardonnay which showcases the purity of fruit from our sustainably farmed, pristine coastal vineyards.  Great drinking now, with the ability to cellar for a few more years.”

VINTAGE

Vineyard Notes
A near-perfect growing season, with a warm, dry lightly windy spring. Summer was warm without excessive heat until 80mm downpour between 18 and 20 January; a timely watering for the reds, not so timely for Chardonnay! Cooler conditions followed and led to a delayed, slow white harvest. Overall, a very strong year for whites with intense fruit flavour and natural acidity.
