✓ In stock

A chardonnay with power and pure fresh stone fruit like yellow fleshy peach and citrus zest, yet simultaneously complex with nutty malo-derived savory notes. Fine French oak aromas balanced by ample fruit intensity, present with approachable acidity. Very drinkable now.

From their east-facing Summit Vineyard, collecting more of the morning sunlight and less of the intense afternoon heat. The altitude ranges between 330m and 368m above sea level. The soil consists of sandy loam over red-orange clay, sandstone and ironstone. The grapes for this wine come predominantly from the upper and lower sections of the Summit Vineyard while the middle section goes to their single vineyard Chardonnay.

The Biodynamic Chardonnay grapes are gently hand harvested into small 15kg crates then whole bunch pressed, with minimal settling into new and old French oak barriques (228L) and puncheons (500L). Fermentation begins spontaneously with wild yeast from their vineyards and winery. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. The wine matures on full lees for 10 months with no battonage. A small dose of sulphur is added at blending just prior to bottling. No enzymes, no fining, no filtration.

Closure: Stelvin screw cap

Alc/Vol: 12.5%
