15% new French Oak, 85% seasoned French Oak.
Hand picked, whole bunch pressed, full malolactic fermentation, no lees stirring and minimal sulphur at bottling.
We do 6 picks of our Chardonnay at various ripeness maturities in order to capture both natural energy and flavour.
The fruit profile is dominated by wonderfully ripe pound pear and vibrant quince while nuances of white florals lift from the glass.
The palate replicates the nose but with a lovely driving line of zesty preserved lemon. Wonderful length, richness and liveliness. A lovely wine.
