In The Cellar
100% whole bunch pressed. Barrel fermented with indigenous yeast and matured for 10 months in French oak puncheons and hogshead barrels. Indigenous malolactic fermentation.

In The Vineyard
Hand harvested from Bendigo (60%) and Cromwell Basin (40%) sub regions of Central Otago. The mild summer combined with classic large diurnal shifts in autumn led to a long ripening period giving great complexity and concentration to the fruit.
"Brilliant lemon and lime green sparkle, this wine absolutely bristles with energy and electricity. Perfumed and precise, it shows a wonderful dusty, stony precision, crushed limestone and delicate notes of oatmeal, vanilla pod , lemon grass and salted caramel biscuits. Lithe and elegant on the palate, but then the turbo charged acids kick in lifting the lemon and lime cordial fruits, accentuating the crystallinity, purity and precision. Simply outstanding, representing everything that is exciting and seductive about premium cool climate Kiwi Chardonnay. Drink now and over 3 to 8+ years. " - Greg Sherwood MW.
