Colour: Light straw with a green tint
Aroma: White nectarine, peach with a citrus background. Fresh and lifted.
Palate: Fine zesty structure with chardonnay flavours of peach and melon. Just a hint of oak supporting the fruit, a lovely crisp acidity to finish.
Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol 11.9%, Acidity 6.1 g/L, pH 3.13, RS 1.7 g/L
Serving Temperature: 10-12 °C
Vinification: Fermented in tank on lees, batonage applied
Vintage Conditions: Bud-burst date was on par with average after wet July & August. Spring was cool & damp which resulted in slow shoot growth. Fruit set was variable due to cool conditions but the weather stabilised in November, with excellent growing conditions through to February. A lack of any weather extremes, either heat or cool spells lead to favourable ripening conditions and excellent flavour development.
