Winemaker notes:

Our 2020 Chardonnay shows baked apples, just ripe nectarine and white flower aromatics with savoury notes of shortcrust pastry and roasted almonds. A chalky, briny style with a moreish mouthfeel and grapefruit acid finish.

104 cases produced.

Whole bunches are pressed cold after a night in the cool room. Juice is transferred with full solids to 1 old 500L puncheon and 1 second use puncheon to complete wild fermentation up to 24 deg C. Low sulphur maturation with no stirring. Maybe a bit of malolactic ferment. Racked without fining or filtration to bottle after 9 months in oak.

We work with Simon Harte at the Full Moon Vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley. 19 year old vines are grown on chocolate coloured volcanic soils on a gentle west facing slope in Gladysdale. This immaculate vineyard is tendered to like a garden. It’s a marginal subregion for grape growing but with careful vineyard management these vines have produced pristine and powerful fruit.
