Berries were hand selected in the cool of the early morning. Following whole bunch pressing juice was allowed to rest to clarify before filling 225 litre French oak barrels (40% new barrels, 50% 2nd fill and the balance 3rd
fill for fermentation). This Chardonnay was 100% barrel fermented, using natural yeast with extended lees contact and daily batonnage. As a result, the wine delivers a naturally fresh, creamy and crisp palate. Around 25% of
this wine underwent malolactic fermentation.
