The Chardonnay, situated on the highest slopes of the farm enjoyed longer afternoon sunshine, yet cooler south easterly breezes at night. The wine has enjoyed eight months on the primary lees with regular "batonage". More than half the wine is fermented in new French barriques, with the balance in second fill.
