Our Chardonnay has aromas of citrus and stonefruit with hints of spice from its time in French oak. The palate is a delicate balance of citrus flavour bolstered by subtle toastiness and crisp acidity.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: The environment in Tasmania is blessed with pristine water, clean air and rich, ancient soils. The climate is cool and dry which are ideal conditions for growing premium cool climate grapes. Our wines are produced with a focus on sustainable viticulture and minimal intervention in our winemaking. The season began with higher than average rainfall in winter and spring prompting faster than usual growth, although temperatures remained a bit below average. As summer arrived the rain disappeared, but temperatures were still cooler than average. The very dry period from summer through to mid-autumn required vigilance in managing irrigation. Yields were moderate overall, but all the indications promise high quality across all varieties. This fruit was harvested in the coolness of the early morning before being pressed straight to French Oak barrels. The wine underwent natural fermentation with no MLF or batonnage. Maturation was for 10 months on lees before blending and bottling.
