COLOUR   Light straw.

NOSE   Lifted honeysuckle, yellow peach, honeydew melon and sweet oak aromas.

PALATE  A fresh, juicy and generous palate, with flavours of white nectarine, lime curd and white mulberry. Generous fruit is supported by fine French oak providing sweet, baking spice & nutty flavours. A delicate acidity holds the wine together and provides a fresh, citrusy finish.

WINEMAKING  Harvested in the cool of the evening to retain varietal freshness. Gently pressed, settled overnight before racking to French oak barrels with some solids for textural integration into the wine throughout fermentation, maturation and lees stirring. This Chardonnay showcases complexity and elegant oak influence while still allowing the fresh varietal characters to shine through. 

VINTAGE NOTES  Margaret River enjoyed a warm, dry Summer with vine canopy management crucial to ensuring fruit quality was retained as the region experienced a couple of extreme rain events. Our white wines are displaying vibrant varietal characters and a bright natural acidity, while the reds are showing more elegant flavours and aromas from this challenging vintage. All in all, the 2021 wines will all have superb flavour, structure and balance.
