A lovely, fresh Chardonnay with a subtle citrus and baked apple palate that is rounded from a tiny portion of barrel aging, producing a soft creaminess. This wine appeals to both wooded and unwooded fans, and works brilliantly with food pairing.

This block is picked as 2 different parcels. The 1st parcel is picked at 21.5 Balling and fermented and aged in steel tanks, to keep freshness and minerality. The 2nd parcel is picked at 22.5 Balling and barrel fermented and aged, to produce the roundness and creaminess. Batonage is done for 6 months in the barrel. Both portions are fermented naturally with indigenous yeast, and we avoid malolactic fermentation. You can drink now, or enjoy in two years time.

These young vines are trellised in one of the richer soils of the farm, containing lots more humus, and with the most soil organisms. It is great to see the guinea fowl scratching between the rows, cleaning the block of all harmful predators, and how it is becoming more naturally in rhythm with nature. Irrigation is only done during drought conditions, and all farming methods are organic. Yields are 3-4 tonne per hectare.
