in the cellar :  Crushing and pressing of this special selection of grapes from the Nine Yards Chardonnay vineyard took place immediately after de-stemming. The juice was barrel fermented in traditional 228 litre French oak barriques using natural yeast from the vineyard. Twelve months oak maturation and regular barrel rolling to accentuate the rich, leesy character has added complexity to this wine especially made for the CWG auction.
