in the cellar : 

After acquiring the farm next door, we found some of the most pristine (and old) chardonnay vineyards. Careful handling in the cellar, whole bunch pressing and fermentation with a bunch of selected yeast strains delivered a beautiful and rich yet fresh wine. Carefully monitored lees contact (sur lie) for 4 months added depth of flavour and character to this elegant wine.
