We have drawn upon Old World influences in the making of this wine and believe it exhibits the ultimate in style and substance.
The old vine chardonnay fruit from the famous Richmond Grove vineyard in the Upper Hunter Valley has been enhanced by the addition of fruit from our new plantings in the Adelaide Hills, an exciting new region for exceptional chardonnay. Pristine frui t was harvested cool , crushed, pressed
and the cloudy juice transfer red to a selection of French oak barriques. The barriques were never inoculated, allowing a wild fermentation to occur . This imparts distinctive aromas and flavours to the wine. Maturation on lees in bar ique for nine months, in combination with batonage, before strict barrel selection for blending has resulted in this premium wine of very limited quantity.
