The Follett family vineyard was established in the 1880's by Arthur John Follett, the great grandfather of Greg Follett, the winemaker. The varieties grown on the vineyard include Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Chardonnay, with small blocks of Grenache, Merlot, Petit Verdot and White Frontignac.
The grapes for the 2016 Reserve Chardonnay were picked from the most outstanding block of chardonnay on the property and gently pressed prior to barrel fermentation and maturation in French oak.
Elements of wild yeast fermentation, extended time on yeast lees and partial malo-lactic fermentation have added complexity and enhanced the natural citrus and nectarine flavours in the wine.
An elegant wine with a long and textured finish, which has the capacity to age gracefully in the bottle over the next 6 to 8 years
