Winemaking Notes

This single vineyard, estate grown Chardonnay comes from our Schoenthal Vineyard located 450m above sea. Using the Bernard Clones 76 and 95 the Chardonnay is handpicked, chilled, hand sorted, whole bunch pressed. Using only the free run juice its barrel fermented in 33% new French oak, 33% 2nd fill and 33% seasoned French oak for 9 months. We used 2 types of yeast and 20% natural barrel ferment to add complexity and structure to the wine.

The wine displays cool climate Chardonnay characteristics of citrus fruits and white peach with delicate floral notes while the oak maturation and lees stirring imparts a very clean but complex finish. This wine delivers incredible length and lingers on the pallet with crisp natural acidity

Growing Conditions

The 2016 vintage saw most favourable ripening conditions. The cold nights retained natural acidity while the warm days ensured flavour development.
