1998 John Platter Wine Guide ****

ageing : At a young age it drinks superbly, but has extraordinary potential to age and can be kept for another 5 to 7 years.

about the harvest: Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes that were hand picked in the early morning to ensure coolness.

in the cellar : Fifty percent of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and fifty percent was barrel fermented in new wood where it underwent malolactic fermentation and was left on the lees for 8 months. It was then blended and fined before being bottled.
