Bright, sweet citrus, toastiness, perfectly balanced
A tricky season commencing with a warm October which had the vine growth speeding along nicely, but a wet November slowed fruit set and reduced yields. Early summer was hot and dry, with a wet February delaying harvest by a week. Our organic farming methods had the vineyards in terrific shape, with the chardonnay displaying beautiful fruit purity and bright natural acidity.
Estate grown vineyards make up this blend, predominantly from the Gingin clone, which provides a backbone of grapefruit. Parcels of fruit were pressed and settled overnight prior to fermentation in French oak puncheons. Subsequent bâtonnage and maturation
over seven months added further complexity and texture.
Parcels were blended before bottling in November 2021.
