Description

Hand-picked fruit from the number 1 and 5 Chardonnay clone and whole bunch pressed to retain the elegant free run juice. The juice was fermented slowly and at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve and enhance the regional cool climate minerality. The base wine was put through a secondary fermentation using the traditional method. The wine spent seven years on yeast lees before being disgorged in 2021. The time on lees allows the wine to build up complexity and structure on the palate. Produced from 100% Chardonnay to create a Methode Traditionelle Blanc de Blancs style.

James Halliday Wine Companion 2022
“84 months on lees. Slightly cloudy in the glass with flecks of straw gold. On the nose this has delicate cheesecloth, lemon pith, oyster shell and brine. On the palate this follows suit, it is chalky, fine, balanced and long – a gorgeous expression of the blanc de blancs style. Very, very fresh.”
