The fruit for this wine comes from specially selected batches of Chardonnay from vineyards in the Southern Highlands of NSW. Fermented in stainless steel vats at a low temperature to retain its fresh citrus characters, this wine has been bottle fermented and aged on lees for 24 months, which gives it distinctive yeast complexity to complement the rich fruit characters, backed with palate cleansing acidity. It was disgorged in November 2018.
