About:  Apricus Hill, established in 1995, is the highest vineyard in Denmark, on Western Australia's south coast.  At 750 feet above sea level and with panoramic views of the southern ocean, the vineyard experiences a true maritime effect with cooling ocean breezes, making it a true cool climate vineyard.  This is a small family vineyard creating small volumes of reserve quality wine.

This Chardonnay has been made with only the free run juice - the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness  and phenolics associated with the grape skin.  The juice was fermented in new and second use French oak 500 litre puncheons with some grape solids giving the wine a complex savoury note.  It matured in oak for 9 months.  

Tasting Notes:  A vibrant lifted nose of citrus and stone fruits with savoury cashew notes and hints of gunflint and toasty French oak.  On the palate nectarine and mandarin are complemented by a textured savoury mid palate with hints of melon and spicy vanilla oak leading to a long crisp grapefruit finish.
