Melon, white florals, subtle oak notes
Frangipanis, white stone fruits, salty margarita supported by the natural acidity creating a focused, crisp lingering finish.
The 2020 vintage in Margaret River was one of the best the region had seen in many years. With lower rainfall and higher than average temperatures it allowed for a perfect growing season. No early bird pressure and precision crop management gave the fruit optimal opportunity to achieve full flavour ripeness. The great growing season can easily be seen in the fruit profiles that this wine displays.
The fruit was hand picked and whole bunch pressed into tank and allowed to rest overnight. The juice was transferred down to French oak barriques and put through wild fermentation, creating a layered and textural palate. The wine was then left to mature for 8 months in oak where a routine battonage schedule was conducted to increase the palate weight of the wine. The result is a very delicate yet intense style of chardonnay.
