A modern Australian Chardonnay of outstanding character, showcasing premium Eden Valley fruit. While drinking beautifully now, with careful cellaring this Chardonnay will develop further for up to 10 years.
Selected parcels of premium Eden Valley fruit were picked at optimum flavour development while still retaining excellent acidity. Fermentation was in 500 litre puncheons, 56% of which were new and the balance all 1 to 2 years old.
Refreshing acidity was retained by limiting malolactic fermentation. Selected parcels also had battonage to add texture, complexity and mouth feel. The final blend was created from a selection of individual barrels.
About the Winery
Two parcels from Eden Valley were selected, one closer to Springton. The parcels were kept separate throughout the picking and winemaking process to ensure that only the best barrels made the final blend.
