COLOUR: Intense green with some lemon.
AROMA: Fine and pure with a perfume of cashew nut and Chardonnay fruit aromas that are complemented with integrated high quality French oak.
PALATE: A very fine palate, with real length and persistence. This is a classical Chardonnay and with further cellaring will reward those with patience. Fruit flavour dominance will see a fine Chardonnay expression in the future.
FOOD MATCH: Duck or goose is a fine accompaniment.
CELLARING: Five years
Region: Margaret River
Vintage notes: The 2018 vintage for whites was outstanding – it is and will be a classic year for whites, as good as or better than the great 2006.
Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Winemaking: The Chardonnay grapes were selected for intensity of flavour with the objective to make a wine that is fine, persistent and with the potential to bottle age over the medium term. Whole bunch pressed, the wine is fine and long. Hand stirring of 40% new barrels has allowed the wine to evolve as necessary before the final decision to assemble the wine for bottling.
Acidity: 7.25 g/l
Residual sugar: Dry
