Our truly cool climate ensures an sublime, yet complex expression of Chardonnay that speaks with purity of time and place.

Tasting notes on release…

Bouquet
A generous, intense nose leads a complex interplay of mealy oak with an array of ripe fruits showing as nectarine, melon, white peach with hints of lychees and figs. Secondary notes arise with spice, cashews, fresh yeast lees and struck match barrel characters.

Palate
A mouthfeel that appears both simultaneously rich and lively. Ripe grapefruit, white peach join with hints of fresh lemon peel to weave seamlessly into the textural elements of oak spice and creamy yeast lees. A dance of minerality and acid plays out throughout the palate, leading to a long and lingering finish.
