Light straw with a green edge.
Complex nutty mineral chardonnay.
Tight lean citrus like fruit with hazelnut undertones. Long flavoured palate,
creamy, fine, good texture.
In 2010 we experienced a cool growing season with timely rainfall. Fruit was mature and
expressive at balanced alcohol and acidity levels. Picking dates ranged from mid February to early March.
Fruit is selected from our estate vineyards at Dixons Creek and Tarrawarra as well as some select vineyards in the upper Yarra. Grapes are both whole bunch pressed as well as crushed to give a range of phenolics for complexity and texture. The juice is allowed to ferment naturally in new and used French oak casks as well as some high solids tank fermetation. Lees are stirred regularly until spring and final assembling of the blend.
Alc/Vol : 12.5 % pH : 3.33 TA : 6.2 g/L
