Colour: Bright straw green.

Tasting Notes: Bright straw green, and almost limey in colour, this Chardonnay shows intense aromas of fresh peaches, grapefruit, guava, and hints of lemongrass. Oak maturation contributed with creamy vanilla, butterscotch, white pepper and ash notes, enhancing its complexity.

Winemaking: Sourced from 32 years old vines planted on rocky loam soils, located on the Central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were machine harvested in early-March, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into French and Hungarian oak barrels (five years old). Fermentation took place over 12 days with selected yeast. The wine was kept on lees contact for a further two months. Finally, after eight months the wine was racked and stabilised (protein and tartrate) and prepared for bottling.

Food Matching: Enjoy lightly chilled with grilled barramundi, sashimi dishes, and fresh oysters.

Cellaring: A brilliant drop now, with the potential to improve over several years.
