Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The variances each vintage offers, will favour each variety in a different way. And every year will call upon an altered approach to managing both the vine and wine. Mostly, these are subtle changes. I believe over the last four years we have entered a new paradigm in our approach to Chardonnay without alienating far from our traditional style.
A formidable straw golden, light yellow colour introduces this wine. I have to go back to the 2009 when the wine expressed a similar soft and creamy nose, layered with almond nougat, ripe pineapple and golden kiwi fruit. The wine is kept opulent and energetic with hints of freshly crushed thyme and lemon rind. Extended time on lees, 15 months, helped to develop brioche and crème caramel like characters with added texture and weight.
A softly coated acidity allows the wine to move over the palate in a gentle matter, deceptively masking the linear and postured nature due to interaction with other textural components. The scope and depth of flavour effortlessly captivates interest by initially showcasing almond croissant, Beurre Bosc pears and barely noticeable toast, presumably from the oak barrels. Since little Malo-lactic acid conversion happens with this wine a lemon sorbet character allows for a long finish. Enjoy this wine after two to five years for optimal drinking pleasure."
