Vinification Details

  • The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed and selected parcels fermented on oak in temperature controlled environments to maximise fruit flavour and retention. Post fermentation the majority of the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks with a percentage of the wine transferred onto French and American Oak and a portion also put through malo-lactic fermentation. Post both primary and secondary fermentation components of the blend are then carefully selected and blended.

Regional Information

  • The fruit was selected from vineyards in the Murray Darling and Gundagai with various soil types. The climate is hot with high evaporation rates & generally low rainfall making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental, resulting in long sunny days and noticeably cooler nights. Modern viticultural & winemaking techniques mean that the climate can be seen as one of the region's strengths.

WOW

5 stars

Wonderful wine. More than I would normally pay, but now on offer, so just have to stock up. Think it could be one of the best Chardonnays yet.... for the price. I bought my first bottle because I was spending an evening at a friends home for dinner, and it was my present. It was the first bottle to be opened, and we both made comments about the honey/oak taste Reading the back of the bottle...it suggests peaches.....just another glut .....Yes I do taste peaches. I initially bought that first bottle because I like Chardonnay, especially Austrailian, and the bottle I bought had 4 trophy winner badges on it. Looked good to take to a dinner party.k

Great tasting Chardonnay
