Production note

Handpicked Chardonnay is pressed and the juice is then placed directly into barrels with no settling or fining. The oak is all French barriques and approximately one third are new with the remainder one and two years old. Fermentation is carried out in the barrel which are stirred weekly to give texture, palate, weight and complexity. The wine spends 12 months in oak and is aged at least 12 months in bottle before released. Screwcapped to enable the wine to be enjoyed at its optimum.
