Tasting Notes: Scents of fresh pear, oatmeal and apple pie. The palate reveals a generous Chardonnay expression where apple notes combine with nougat and white almond. The texture of this wine is a real feature, as is the bright acidity highlighting a great Yarra Valley vintage.
Winemaking Notes: Handpicked on the 2nd of March. Fruit was crushed and presssed to a mix of French oak barriques, foudre (10% new) and stainless steels with juice solids for primary fermentation. The wine was then sulphured on less without malolactic conversion. Elevage 10 months on less in oak (75%) and stainless steel (25%).
Viticultural Notes: Optimal conditions for flowering and fruitset in the vineyards gave well balanced yield with plenty of promise leading into the 2019 harvest. A dry January and February followed, culminating in a relatively compressed vintage, though attention to detail in the vineyards gave winemakers wonderfully balanced fruit with concentration of flavour and exceptional natural acidity.
