Description

Displaying the true characteristics of a cool climate Chardonnay, this straw yellow in colour wine is finely balanced with mandarin, cashew nut, toasted bread and white peach flavours underpinned by flinty notes and precise acidity. The core of juicy red apple and nougat is complemented by a creamy textured palate, nuanced by biscuity oak flavours.

Winemaking Notes

The Chardonnay vineyards are vertically trellised on south eastern facing slopes and oriented in a northerly direction. The predominant soil type is Estcourt which supports water tables in winter while slowly draining in spring. This soil also has good nutrient reserves and water-retention properties.
