WINEMAKING
Gingin clone Chardonnay from the estate's block 7 was machine harvested in the cool
hours of the morning. Gently press with the free-run juice separated to French oak (30% new) with a portion of solids. Cool, wild fermentation with occasional lees stirring and partial malolactic fermentation build complexity and texture. Maturation for nine months before bottling in early December.

FOOD PAIRING
Roast chicken with lemon, rosemary, garlic and Kepler potatoes 

VINTAGE NOTES
A dry growing season throughout the Great Southern resulted in significantly lower yields across all varieties. However, the warm conditions and continued low rainfall throughout the ripening period created very low disease pressure. One of the earliest vintages on record was produced small bunches of high-quality fruit with concentrated flavours and intensity.
