Overview

Overview

Sourced in a cool vintage, from the hills of the Eden Valley, this lively style of Chardonnay is refreshing and softly textured, awash with juicy nectarine and grapefruit flavours. Lifted aromas of lime and white peach pave the way for a creamy mouthfeel woven with citrus and touches of oak complexity.

"Stone fruit, melon, lime and pale straw hue lead the way to this light, easy-drinking chardy. There's a persistent tap, tap, tap of mouth-watering Eden Valley acid and rolling waves of citrus and white peach. This wine shows restraint. It's not overdone and at this price, is a steal. Drink while it's young and spritely.”"

Viticulture

Viticulture

The 2016/17 growing season commenced with cooler than average conditions through Spring into early Summer, resulting in good set and flowering conditions. Regular rain event and cooler conditions throughout the growing season resulted in a later harvest. These ideal miler conditions saw the grape phenology mature in line with sugar levels, producing full flavoured wines which retained their natural acidity.
