This chardonnay is sourced from fruit grown on the estate vineyard in Wilyabrup. It offers a contrast to the Lenton Brae Wilyabrup Chardonnay, in being more accessible. Total ‘wild’ primary fermentation has added aromatic complexity and texture to the mouthfeel of the wine; barrel fermentation complements the flavour intensity and length. The wine was naturally settled and bottled without prior filtration. While still ‘fine’ and supported by ‘bright’ acidity it is approachable now and it will drink well in the short to medium term.
