Details

Early picked Geelong fruit, whole bunch pressed, wild yeast and barrel fermented. Aged in 1/3 new barriques, 1/3 stainless steel barrels and 1/3 old barriques for 1 year. Good complexity but very approachable now. Great depth of citrus and stone fruits (nectarine tang) well balanced with mild oak and mild butter finish.

"This is my favourite of his current releases and not difficult to see the quality. This Chardonnay comes from early picked Geelong fruit that is handpicked, whole-bunch pressed and fermented wild in barrel. A rich and full style in that ’16 Victorian mode, there’s this waxy textural width here that is just a delight – it reminds me a little of the Irrewarra Chardonnay actually, which makes sense given proximity and style. Lovely generous Chardonnay with complexity and weight. Best drinking: Now to to seven years. Would I buy it? Sure would"
