Tasting Notes

A brilliant olive-green hue very characteristic of this single vineyard Chardonnay. The aromatics of this wine is driven by fresh peach pip, lime and a gentle influence from oak.

Ageing Potential

The age of these vines still prove to produce lovely restraint, tightly structured wines which are rather perfumed when young but develop beautifully from time spent in bottle, 2 - 5 years from release.

Blend Information

100% Chardonnay

In The Vineyard


Cultivars: Chardonnay planted 1988
The 2014 Winter was cut a little short with temperatures rising quickly in August, the growing season remained warm and dry bringing the harvest dates slightly forward. Moderate to cool conditions during ripening resulted in wines with excellent preserved aromatics and flavours. Exceptional white and red wines from this vintage, true greats.

In The Cellar

Barrel Ageing: 9 months, 24% new oak, fermented in 300L French oak barrels
Production: 3 250 cases
