The fruit for this wine was picked on flower or fruit days according to the biodynamic calendar. 50% of the wine was fermented in barrel (with 12% new French oak) for 6 months, to help build texture into the wine. The use of multiple yeast strains helped build complexity.

Expert Reviews

90 Points The WineFront.com Gary Walsh, 24th December 2017

'It’s pretty young and slightly doughy, but has juiciness of Margaret River Chardonnay, with some restraint, almost a passionfruit and herb thing going on. Some flinty feel, and an almost pithy bitterness on the finish, which gives it a nice little tightening up. It’s a good drink. Drink 2018 to 2023

90 Points The Vinsomniac.com

'Classic regional Chardonnay, stone fruit a-plenty here with some oak derived spice bringing up the rear. There’s not as much definition on the palate as the Estate offering, yet the wine does not want for more stone fruit and spiced hints. It’s crisp and clip, the partial barrel fermentation adding a level of detail and welcome complexity to what is otherwise an approachable fruit driven style.'

Tasted on: Thursday 15th March, a Root to Flower day.

Winery Tasting Notes

This is a beautiful example of a contemporary Chardonnay showing lovely floral notes of jasmine and fruit characters of peach, nectarine, pear and melon. Flint, ginger/spice and smokey, toasty vanilla notes are derived from the barrel fermentation and ageing. The palate is bursting with fruit flavour and fleshy peach texture while the balanced acidity brings oyster shell and mineral qualities. This is a Chardonnay for drinking and enjoying now and over the next five years
