Winemaking
This Chardonnay is grown on the deep alluvial soils of the Barossa in South Australia. Vines are vertically spur trained with two foliage wires. Rows are planted in an east west orientation to take advantage of the cooler evening westerly windsThe Chardonnay grapes were harvested at between 12.5 - 13.5Be when the fruit flavours have balanced with acid and sugar levels. The juice was fermented on French oak staves in stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 13-16 degrees locking in the tropical stone fruit flavours. The wine was transferred off yeast lees after ferment in order to obtain a clean fresh style of wine.

Tasting Note
Estate Chardonnay shows lifted citrus aromas with underlying vanillin characters. Crisp lime and apple flavours with hints of melons and stone fruit are balanced by delicate, buttery notes and a long, elegant finish.

Serving Suggestions
Serve lightly chilled, on its own or with salads, quiche, fish or poultry dishes. Delicioius with shellfish and good pair for Asian cuisine.
