About The Wine

 

An elegant and assertive wine blended from three distinct clones on the estate. Sourced from three distinct, north-facing blocks, in predominantly sand and clay loam, on the estate planted to clones 4, 96 and Wente planted in 2012.

 

The grapes were harvested in October at a Brix of 24.3, and had 12 months élevage in neutral French oak barrels.

  • "The 2018 Chardonnay Estate also saw all neutral oak. It offers more tropical notes with plenty of papaya and pineapple fruit as well as sappy flowers and mint, medium-bodied richness, and an elegant, balanced style."

    92 points, Jeb Dunnuck (Aug. 2020)

     

    "This gorgeous nose is full of energy, minerality and super-crisp green apples, fresh tarragon and an almost soured cream note. Delicious! The palate is crisp with an almost salty/marine minerality built around an elegant, refined structure. The long finish has layer upon layer of fresh citrus fruits. Complex and seriously impressive."
