Reserve Chardonnay

2012 Chardonnay
Denmark, Western Australia

Hand-picked at 13.7 Be, the fruit was whole bunch pressed preserving structure and acidity. Free run juice to 1st and 2nd year oak barrels with pressings kept separate and going into stainless steel vessels. A combination of Burgundian yeast and natural yeasts enhances complexity. Partial malolactic fermentation (15%) preserves complexity and natural acidity resulting in flavours of ripe fig and white peach. A wine that exhibits a rich and textural mid-palate. The wine has 10 -15 years cellaring potential.

Lifted aromas of toasted cashew nut, melon, white peach, gun flint and a squeeze of pink grapefruit. Dry, evident acidity with a rich flavour profile of grapefruit, cucumber and white stonefruit aptly supported by the spicy French oak. The wine has complexity, balance and a long finish.

2015 White Blend Four Vines
Handpicked at optimum ripeness. A textual mineral palette from partial fermentation in seasoned French oak and extended lees contact. The cool climate acidity provides backbone and structure with a long crisp finish. A mix of tropical and citrus fruit aromatics.
