Viticulturist Notes

The fruit for the Three Vineyards Chardonnay was chosen from three of our premium vineyards in Central Victoria. This region has warm sunny days and cool evening temperatures which are perfect for the growing of good quality Chardonnay.  We harvested the grapes during the cool of the night to maintain fruit freshness and gently pressed. The fermentation was conducted at cool temperatures ranging between 10-12C, with the fermentation period taking three weeks. The wine was then fined, cold stabilised and filtered before being bottled young and fresh. 

Wine Harvest Notes

Vintage 2017 is best described as a waiting game.  We made it through our marathon 2017 vintage and are thrilled with the exceptional quality including a number of really extraordinary parcels.
