DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Made in the Burgundian style from our best parcels of chardonnay fruit. Barrel fermentation in French oak puncheons, weekly lees stirring and partial malolactic fermentation provides a wine of complexity and significant aging potential. - Colin Campbell and Julie Campbell

Wine Making

The fruit was harvested in February and barrel fermented in a mix of new and old French oak puncheons - 500L capacity. The wine then spent a further nine months in barrel with regular lees stirring to enhance the texture and mouth feel.

Cellaring

Chardonnay is enjoying a resurgence at present and this wine is sure to please! Slightly more restrained and elegant than previous vintages, this wine is perfectly integrated for enjoyment now or reward yourself with further cellaring of up to 5 years.

Palate:

Soft and plush palate which first and foremost champions a rich, peachy Chardonnay fruit profile. Subtle barrel fermentation provides good oak depth, leading to a lengthy yet balanced finish.
