A fresh, fruity Chardonnay with notes of green apple, citrus and toasted cashew notes, and understated oak.
Colour

Pale straw green, with limey coloured hues.

Tasting Notes

This Chardonnay unveils intense aromas of fresh peach, guava and grapefruit
and hints of lemongrass. This wine showcases natural organic wine-making at its best. Subtle oak contributes to the creamy vanillin and butterscotch textures and notes of ash and white pepper, 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.
