Oak leaf soils, with drip irrigation delivering a production of 5 tons/ha. Chardonnay was all harvested at 24 o balling.

BLEND
Chardonnay 86 %
Semillon 14 %

WOOD
Wine spent 15 months in new 300 litre oak barrels. 60% French oak and 40% Hungarian oak.

CELLAR
The Semillon was added to the Chardonnay before fermentation. The fermentation was started in stainless steel and transferred to barrels after the first 3 degrees of sugar were fermented off. The wine spent 8 months on its lease in the barrels with regular stirring of the lease during that period. After that the wine was racked and returned to the barrels for a further 7 months of maturation.

TASTING NOTES
