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

Bouquet An aromatic nose of white stone fruit infused with fragrant lime blossom and fennel along with hints of struck match and wheatmeal which provide further complexity. Palate Nectarine, white peach, and pear merge with grapefruit citrus, all lining up to be embraced by the cool charge of acidity. Subtle French oak and creamy lees provide both a savoury and textural frame for luxurious length. In unison, these elements form a palate of great vitality while maintaining tension and focus. Cellaring Drinking now and over the next 8 – 10 years.
