About The Harvest

Our Chardonnay was hand picked and vinified from a selection of rows out of a top-performing dry land block of vineyard on the farm.

In The Cellar

Grapes were hand sorted and whole bunch pressed. Alcoholic fermentation was done in a selection of French 300 litre barrels where it matured for 10 months before bottling. Oaking – 20% New French barrels, 80% 2nd and 3rd fill French barrels. Barrels were rolled once a week to add a buttery full bodied complexity. Fermentation – grapes were barrel fermented at a low temperature to ensure fruit flavours on both nose and palate. MLF was 100% completed on 50% of barrels. Wild yeast fermentation on a few barrels added to complexity. The wine was lightly filtered before bottling and then labelled on the farm.
