Estate Bottled

Tasting Notes:
Hints of exotic melon and banana are what makes our Unoaked Chardonnay such a delightfully fresh wine. Tanya Mitchell – winemaker

A vibrant Chardonnay with sweet melon aromas accented with a fresh hint of lemon. The flavour of juicy melon and banana on the palate balances perfectly with a subtle citrus finish.

Winemaker’s Notes:
Gravity flow into new French oak barrels really enchanted this wine’s bouquet

Like a fresh French Brioche, this wine opens with the scent of fruit, butterscotch and vanilla. It balances the best of the smooth and buttery barrel against the fresh fruit and crisp backbone of the wine.

      Winemaker’s Notes:
      These grapes are left longer on the vine and hand picked to ensure only the premium ripe fruit. Only 35 cases of this premier limited vintage were made. The wine displays elegant aromas, a full and creamy texture followed by a surprisingly crisp finish.
