✓ In stock

Style: A fine boned Chardonnay that reflects the conditions of the vintageand the character of this unique vineyard site. The 2020 vintage has great intensity of fruit, with floral, lemon curd, and mineral notes. Layered texture is balanced by high acidity.

Season: The growing season in 2020 had two key features. Cool and windy weather at flowering gave super-low yields, and a lovely and cool February meant great flavour and acidity.

Sourced: From blocks three and four in the Shaw + Smith Lenswood Vineyard. First planted in 1999, it has east and west facing aspects and reaches 500 meters above sea level. The soil is brown loam over clay with some broken shale and stone on the ridges.

Vinification: Whole bunches were chilled overnight, then pressed, before fermentation in new and used 500 litre French oak puncheons. The wine spent a futher 10 months in barrel with gentle stirring.

Serve: A luxurious match with kingfish ceviche. Ideal temperature is 10-12°C.
Cellar potential: Will reward careful cellaring for up to 10 years.

Alc/Vol: 13.5%
