in the vineyard : The grapes are partially sourced from selected vineyards on unique limestone soils that our Chardonnay clones thrive in. The remaining component was grown on deep decomposed granite soils that add richness and texture.

about the harvest: The 2016 harvest produced lighter bunches with smaller, more concentrated grapes with intense fruit flavours, which were harvested in February in very hot and dry conditions.

in the cellar : Wines were fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures between 13° C - 16° C. After fermentation the wine was kept on the lees for 2 to 3 months, and stirred once a week to add richness and complexity to the wine.
