Winemaker’s Notes
The grapes were harvested and gently pressed to stainless steel tanks for fermentation at cool temperatures, with yeasts selected to highlight the juice’s natural fruit characters. Post fermentation the wine was stirred several times a week to encourage yeast autolysis, which adds to the creamy texture of the palate. A small portion of the wine was also put through malo-lactic fermentation, also adding complexity to the palate.

Viticulture Notes
This wine was made with grapes predominantly from our owm Chaytors Road vineyard and is a mix of Mendoza and Clone six Chardonnay’s. The Mendoza clone provides a lovely tight acid structure, while the Clone six brings tropical fruit characters and relatively low acid. A small, very good parcel of Clone six also came off the clay slopes of the Potez vineyard overlooking the Brancott Valley.

Food Match
