TASTING NOTES


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 matching: Duck or goose is a fine accompaniment.

Cellaring: Five years

Alcohol: 12.75% Standard drinks: 7.5

 

TECHNICAL NOTES


Region: Margaret River

Vintage notes: The 2017 vintage for whites was cool and very late – 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.

pH: 3.40

Acidity: 6.75 g/l

Residual sugar: Dry

Closure: Screwcap
