Vineyard: Beautiful Valley (Charleston) Block B and Block E
Clones: Chardonnay I10V1
Winemaking: The fruit was picked early from low yielding vines and at night to preserve fruit quality. Primary fermentation using traditional EC-118 champagne yeast in stainless steel, partial malo latic fermentation gives fullness but still retains freshness.
Nose: Bright and fresh on the nose with aromas of lemon and stone fruit.
Palate: Vibrant lemon rind, stone fruit and key lime flavours dominate. The chardonnay offers great length and fresh acidity. Finishing dry with a hint of creaminess.
