A fresh and delicate nose with light fruits and yeasty tones, complimented by a hint of fresh berries and cream. The Chardonnay offers both complexity and fruit on the palate, whilst the Pinot Noir brings an elegance and sophistication to complete the overall package. A lovely, fresh wine with a lingering bead and a persistent length.

Viticulturist Notes

This wine was crafted from 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir grapes, chosen from our three best performing vineyards. Grapes were picked and crushed during the cool of night to retain their fresh, varietal flavours. The juice was then divided into three select parcels. Each parcel underwent a different treatment such as malolactic fermentation; fermentation and time with French oak; or spending an extended period on yeast lees. Each treatment resulted in an individually flavoured parcel of wine, and the unique character and personality of the final blend is a result of the special handling of these separate parcels.


Food Recommendations:

A brilliantly versatile wine, exceptional as an apertif or starter. It is delicious served with a seafood entrée or Thai stir-fry and is superb with fresh fruit and dessert at the end of a meal.
