Hand harvested and pressed as 100% whole clusters, pressings remaining separate. Barrel fermented in new and seasoned French oak puncheons and barriques. Aged on lees for 18 months before bottling with no fining or filtration.
Chardonnay is the variety that would have the balance of acidity and structure that would handle extended lees ageing in barrel, with great vineyard sites in the Adelaide Hills. It shows a bit of Barossa breeding, a bit more oxidised, structured and full bodied than the normal hills examples, but the zippy acidity that interplay with toasty lees characters was exactly what you will be looking for .
