Colour 
Bright and clear with hints of gold.

Aroma 
White fruits and hints of melon.

Palate 
Not very full flavoured but the typical Mosquito Hill honey dew melon in evidence. No noticeable wood flavours, so quite an elegant style.

Cellaring
As with all our chardonnay’s this will easily improve in the bottle for seven or so years and then maintain excellent drinking for 5-7 years more.

Vintage 
An early vintage with the fruit picked late in February at beaume of around 12.5. The crop produced about 27HL/ha (1.5 tonnes/acre).

Vinification
The wine was made oxidatively, so no sulphur was added until the end of the alcoholic fermentation. The grapes were pressed and the juice was cooled in tank for 48 hours and then racked to French oak barrels, with about 20% being new barrels.

Comments
This is typical of the slightly lighter (lower in alcohol) style we are now making, with much less overt oak influence.
