Blend Information

100% Chardonnay

In The Vineyard

The fruit for this Chardonnay comes from one of the oldest Chardonnay blocks on the farm.

About The Harvest

Two pickings were done for this vintage - a quarter was picked at 22° Balling with the balance at 23.5° Balling.

In The Cellar

The bunches were whole bunch pressed for 3 hours, settled naturally for 12 hours over night, then transferred to French oak for fermentation. Once completed the wine was aged on full ferment lees for 12 months with no malolactic, minimal battonage and no racking. A barrel selection was then done to make up the blend. 35% new, 30% 2nd fill and 35% 3rd fill.
