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

Bouquet A floral and savoury nose rich with white stone fruits mesh with complex struck match & wheat notes. Layers of lemon-lime citrus zest and fresh cut green apple add charm to the subtly savoury frame of white truffle and bakers spice. Palate Intense white peach drives the front palate before being drawn taut via crisp citrus energy that merges with savoury wheatmeal notes and fine chalky structure that culminates with lingering minerality. Cellaring Drinking beautifully now with 8+ years cellaring potential.
