A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine - handpicking and whole bunch pressing directly to 500 litre French oak puncheons for a natural fermentation followed by 11 month maturation on lees.

Expert Reviews

Rating 95 - James Halliday Published 01 August 2018

From the Upper Yarra, hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed direct to French puncheons for wild fermentation followed by 10 months maturation. There is a very deliberate touch of funky complexity to the bouquet and the finish of the palate stemming from the barrel fermentation on 100% solids juice. It's accepted, indeed welcomed, by most judges and consumers.

Rated : 94+ Points Campbell Mattinson, Tasted : Sep17 Wine Front

All the attention has been on the 2015s and then this 2016 appears. Stop the presses. Fruit concentration is immediately apparent. This is a powerful chardonnay, classically styled, oatmeal and oak, peach and roasted cedar wood; it announces itself and it then stays the course. There’s a quartz-like character and plenty of toast; the palate is rich; the finish is both textural and long. Nothing here feels windswept or cursive; the flavours have all been set in bold font, Bodoni-like, suggestive of class at every turn. Drink : 2018 - 2023+
