GRAPES/ BLEND: Chardonnay

VINIFICATION: Each parcel of chardonnay was carefully handpicked between 26 February - 2 March, in pristine condition. Every parcel was handled separately in the winery, with minimal intervention. The chardonnay was whole bunch pressed and transferred with solids, into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons (20% new) to undergo natural fermentation. It was then left to mature on lees for 11 months, without malolactic fermentation proceeding until bottling in late January 2019.

VINTAGE NOTES: The 2018 season was characterised by a warm and extended summer. The wines are intensely flavoured, yet poised and balanced, ensuring their longevity.

CELLARING POTENTIAL: Stored carefully, the wine will age gracefully for at least eight years.
