Estate 2017 Chardonnay - 2019 release

Estate Range


Clear pale straw.


Clean developing aromas of cashew, lemon rind, creamy pear and toast.


Rich, clean medium bodied developing flavours of rockmelon, fig and French toast cradled in a bright key lime acidity finishing with a good length of tangy dried apricot.


The grapes were harvested cool in the morning then pressed into tank and oak.  The tank fermented portion (70%) was cool fermented and employed burgundy yeast. Yeast lees where periodically stirred back into the wine for 11 months thereafter to impart greater dimension and textural properties. The barrel fermented portion (30%) was fermented with a more fruit driven Portuguese yeast strain followed by complete malo-lactic fermentation to enhance both layering on the palate and overall complexity.


Smoked Ocean Trout with seasonal vegetables.


A relatively cool summer made for one of the best vintages for many years

with harvest taking place weeks later than usual and the slower ripening

providing more time for flavour development and more intensely flavoured
