Aromas of white stone fruits, citrus and flint are complemented with fine mineral and nut characters on the palate. Crisp, lemony acidity gives the wine elegance and a lingering finish. Patient cellaring of this wine will reward.
Very low yielding chardonnay vines were hand-picked into small baskets before being whole bunch pressed. The juice was fermented in a mix of new and old French oak barriques, with partial wild ferment. Frequent lees stirring was carried out for a period of 2 months, and malolactic fermentation is allowed to occur spontaneously. The wine was left to mature in the oak for 15 months prior to racking and bottling.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from old vines on the Deviation Road vineyard. This site is situated at 550m in the famously cool Adelaide Hills. This altitude ensures cool conditions during ripening, ideal for delivering freshness and elegance.
