Reviews

“Light lemon/green, with a fresh, slightly buttery bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with generous, peachy, lemony flavours, showing some savoury complexity, a creamy texture and a dry, well-rounded finish."
Michael Cooper

Winemaking notes

The fruit for this wine was sourced entirely from the organically certified vineyard on our winery block in Brightwater. Two Chardonnay clones were used – Clone 6 and B95. The fruit was harvested on 5th and 20th April 2015 at an average of 21.5 Brix.
The grapes were pressed and the juice allowed to settle naturally in tank. All the juice was racked to barrels – all two years old or older to impart a subtle oak influence to the wine. Specially selected organically-certified yeast strains were used to ferment the juice to dryness.
After fermentation, the wine was aged on lees in barrel with regular stirring during the first few months. The wine was blended after 12 months; filtered and bottled on 28 June 2016. No animal-derived finings were used making the wine vegan friendly.
