  • TASTING NOTE: A lovely waxy, green tea candle note lifts in the subtle white peach, pear and green plum perfume, accompanied by complex floral aromas of Jasmine and camomile and sexy hints of rock flint and vanilla bean. More savoury complexity will develop with time in the bottle.The palate shows a lovely rich core framed by a delicate dry structure. The satin palate features complex flavours of purified lemon, a hint of ginger, custard and delicate peach, and finishes with a lovely dry, chalky feel.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Rapid ripening through January following a delayed season from spring conditions saw the flavours and sugars lift quickly. The Gingin clone fruit retained fantastic acidity which suggested most plots desired completion of a natural MLF. Some sections were hand-harvested, gently whole-bunch pressed and transferred to French oak barriques as unclarified juice for fermentation. The balance were Selectiv harvested and direct pressed with very high solids juice racked to barrel. All batches were fermented with natural yeasts from the vineyard. Each batch was left on lees in barrel for 8 months of maturation with an additional 6 months blended in the cellar for harmonisation before being bottled. Only Premier Cru Chardonnay sections were selected which included 84% Gingin clone and 16% Bernard clones 95, 96 and 76. Wallcliffe vineyard plots dominated in this rapid ripening year, however fantastic Premier sections from Wilyabrup also made the grade, alongside portions from our Carbanup and Karridale vineyards. Matured in French oak barrique 44% new, 56% 1-3 year old (Included 26% 1 year old Mercurey) 14 months. 8 months in oak, 6 months blended in tank.
