A continuation of the previous vintage with a nose of toasted farm bread with lashings of butter and zesty lime and marmalade. An elegant Chardonnay, well integrated with the wood and brimming with citrus flavours. THE HARVEST The harvest was earlier this year. Summer rains resulted in partial rot settling in and so the ripe and healthy grape bunches had to be sorted by hand before picking. IN THE CELLAR The juice was fermented in 300L French Oak barrels and aged on the lees for 10 months. 15% New oak and 85% older oak was used.
