More from this Producer
Complex and very satisfying, this is a charming Southern Margaret River Chardonnay.
Hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, full solids and wild fermentation in barrique (approx. 25% new). Post ferment, barrels are left cool but unsulphured for 4 months to encourage autolytic activity. Batonnage every two weeks based on flavour and partial MLF.
100% Calgardup Brook. This vineyard lies just inland from the coast. Its sandy, schisty soils are well weathered. These chardonnay vines run east-west with a slightly sloping northern aspect.
100% Burnside Vineyard. Located on the bend of the Margaret River, this old vineyard grows on unique micaceous black soils. The chardonnay rows are on a steep northerly aspect running in a north-west, southeast orientation.
