A refined and Certified Organic Chardonnay with subtle oak contributing to vanillin and butterscotch textures in this well-balanced wine.
Colour

Pale straw-green with lime coloured hues.

Tasting Notes

This wine showcases natural organic winemaking at its best. This Chardonnay shows intense aromas of fresh peach, grapefruit, guava, and hints of lemongrass. Subtle oak contributes to the creamy vanillin and butterscotch textures and notes of white pepper and ash, creating a beautifully structured wine that is well-balanced and refined.

Food Matching

Enjoy this Chardonnay with an array of seafood such as crab cakes, smoked salmon or grilled barramundi. Equally delicious with chicken in a creamy white sauce, or a light, coconut-based Thai curry.

Cellaring

Delicious now, and has great years ahead. Serve lightly chilled.

Winemaking

The organic fruit for this wine was sourced from 32 year old vines planted in rocky loam soils located on the central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were harvested cool in the morning then pressed into French oak (one year old) and Hungarian oak (four years old) where fermentation took place over 15 days with the selected yeast. Some small, fruit driven parcels were added post-ferment. The wine was aged on its yeast lees (sur-lie) for a further seven months to enhance the mouth-feel.
