WINEMAKING 

The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and pressed to stainless steel tanks for settling overnight or whole bunch pressed after a night in the cold room with one night’s settling and subsequent racking. Only the free run juice from the best blocks is used for the Reserve Collection Chardonnay. The juice from the settled batches was then racked and run off to barrel for fermentation with selected yeast. After fermentation the wine was topped and left on the lees with regular lees stirring for 9 months. 70% of the barrels were allowed to complete malolactic fermentation. The barrels were all tight grain French oak 228 litre of which 28% were new the rest were 2nd and 3rd fill barrels. The wine was bottled in December 2022. 35 566 bottles were produced. 

TASTING NOTES

This wine displays a light gold colour. Aromas of baked lemon, limeskin, mandarin blossom and toasted almond emanate from the glass. The wine enters the palate with bold, ripe yellow citrus flavours leading to a creamy mid-palate. There is a continuous saline focus and feeling of freshness throughout that suggests this wine will age beautifully for at least a decade. Food pairing: Best served with grilled fish - roasted white meats or creamy white cheese.
