A small parcel of carefully tended vines of Chardonnay fruit was harvested from the Tolley Vineyard in Woodside on the 1st March 2016.
Hand picked grapes were gently whole pressed to seasoned French oak barrels using free-run juice only. A high solids, wild fermentation followed, giving the wine texture and complexity. The wine then underwent Malo-lactic fermentation with weekly batonage (stirring) for 6 months before bottling.
Strongly aromatic with hints of stone fruit, cashew and spice. A full bodied style with subtle and restrained oak.

Refreshing green apple, mint and pineapple.
Driven by lemon and passionfruit, the acid is clean and gentle, balanced by a slightly grapefruit sweetness at the end of the palate.

Grapes for this single vineyard wine were hand harvested on March 12 from two small blocks on our Uley vineyard at the northern end of the Piccadilly Valley.
Initial juice analysis showed a Baumé of 11.6 degrees, pH 3.09 and titratable acid of 7.7 g/litre. After crushing and gentle pressing, the juice was fermented to dryness at low temperatures to enhance fresh fruit characters.Following stabilisation in tank, the wine was filtered and bottled on 2nd July 2019. Alcohol 12.5%.
Classically varietal and aromatic, the wine displays citrus, pear, guava, elderflower, herbaceous and faint grassy aromas followed by a generous palate with persistent fruit flavours, minerality and crispness and a spicy, tingling finish from the natural grape acidity.
