To preserve the vivid fruit flavours and beautiful balance of upper Yarra Valley Chardonnay, grapes are hand picked throughout the cool morning hours, immediately destemmed and lightly crushed into a press. Juices are chilled, settled and given time for skin contact to draw some phenolic, inoculated through a combination of wild and cultured yeasts to add layers of complexity and enhance vineyard expression. Batches are filled to a mix of oak barrels and fermenters for several days vinification at 18°C to 21°C. Components are treated to fortnightly battonage on lees for up to a year before assembling into the final wine, cold stabilized and fined before bottling.
Straw yellow hues. Big bouquet of citrus and lemon curd, grapefruits, stonefruits and a whisp of toasty apple flan. Lemons and brûlée to the palate, an effusive style of crisp stone fruit flavours, ripe orchard harvests, minerality and gently spiced French oak before a lingering, fruit filled finish, elegant and pleasingly dry.
