Bright in colour with flavours of limes and apples on the nose. The palate is medium bodied, well balanced and is lifted by a mineral freshness. Textured in its structure, the wine is rounded off by a long rich finish.

in the vineyard : Our unique terroir and cool climate consistently provides concentrated grapes full of flavour with a distinct freshness enabling us to produce a Chardonnay which is crisp with an enticing complexity.

in the cellar : In order to reflect the terroir, the wine was made with a minimalistic approach using nautral yeast . Alcoholic fermentation started in stainless steel tanks, it was completed in a combination of 30% new French oak barrels. After 9 months on the gross lees the wine was blended, settled and bottled after minimal filtration.
