STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The Chardonnay grapes were handpicked and whole bunch pressed with a portion directly to barrel and a portion to tank for set settling and racked clean to barrel after 24 hours. All oak consisted of French barriques with approximately one third new, and the remainder one and two year old. Fermentation was carried out in barrel, with elements of wild ferment for enhanced texture and depth.
Pale straw with hints of green undertones. White peach, cantaloupe melon, coconut cream, nougat and hints of fresh fig on the nose. Underlying aromas of toast and pecan nuts. The palate has primary tropical fruit flavours of peach and melon cradled by harmonious and structure nutty oak flavours. Juicy lees complexity and toasty undertones are balanced with fresh natural acidity giving focus and length.
