An elegant, refined and delicate Chardonnay that is also surprisingly voluptuous. The nose shows classic Yarra characters of fresh melon and intense citrus flavours, underpinned with notes of marzipan and hazelnut. Crisp acidity ensures a refreshing, clean finish. All the fruit is 100% hand-picked and fermented in 500 litre French oak puncheons, of which 10% are new and 90% older oak. No malolactic fermentation or lees stirring took place. The wine was then aged for 7 months in 10% new and 90% used French puncheons.
