Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Careful fruit selection underpins a style of restraint and finesse. Slow, cool barrel ferments, with 8 months lees maturation in puncheons and hogsheads provides a complex backdrop to naturally intense fruit flavours and mineral acidity. Minimal intervention winemaking techniques highlight fruit quality and showcase classic Chardonnay varietal characteristics.
Food Pairing Notes
Smoked cod fritters and grilled prawns.
