100% Chardonnay - from a steep, high altitude (550m), cool climate, North facing Burgundian cloned block in Lenswood with a rock base of quartz and ironstone.

2688 bottles filled. Unfined and unfiltered.

12.8% Alc.

Handpicked late February. Pressed with full solids straight to seven seasoned troncais barriques and a new chassin puncheon. Indigenous yeast fermentation. Full MLF. Weekly batonnage for 18 weeks. Settled and carefully gravity racked.

A tightly wound cool climate chardonnay which leads with mouth-watering grapefruit and nectarine.

Mealy granny smith apples and a fine tuning of grilled hazelnuts and honeysuckle spice sets the foundation for the almost nettle like svelte texture.

Aromatically evolving between gun flint, bee's wax and maya lemon rind. The palate is taut and precise, and finishes long with powerful elegance.
