Our Chardonnay is a textural wine but one that remains fruit focused.


The Chardonnay is a complex dry white. It derives it’s flavours and texture not just from the natural compounds of the grape but with the introduction of post ferment batonnage. These elements help to add texture and palate weight to support the grapes natural generous and elegant fruit flavours. This style of wine represents a great challenge to winemakers as it uses a number of different techniques.


Chardonnay fruit for this wine was sourced from the Chittering Valley at the northern end of the Perth Hills. It was hand harvested at 12. baume and whole bunch pressed at 3 degrees to an extraction of 650 litres per ton. The juice was transferred to settle for 48 hours before racking off solids and fermented cold, in stainless steel tanks, ceramic eggs and French oak hogsheads for complexity. Post ferment the wine was batonnaged (lees stiring) for two months to build palate weight and texture. After six months maturation the final wine was blended. The resulting wine shows lifted elegant aromatics of nectarine and white peach, a palate of rounded texture with crisp grapefruit, passionfruit and citrus flavours but with a crisp focused dry finish.
