This Chardonnay is produced from a 7 hectare close-planted plot of selection massale Wenté (Mendoza) clone vines on the Woodlands Brook Vineyard. This wine is an intense pale straw colour. The nose is fine, delicate, and aromatic - showing white peach, nectarine, white flowers, notes of rock melon and orange zest, and a touch of barrel ferment struck flint. The palate is fine yet powerful, with a dense entry and rich middle palate of ripe orchard fruits, brioche, and some grapefruit. The finish is long and bright, with a touch of phenolic grip. Pair with; Ripe diced rockmelon, grilled tiger prawns and summer salsa, Gougeres with savoury mushroom filling.

Hand picked and whole-bunch pressed. Wild ferment in barrel, partial mlf, matured for 10 months in French hogsheads (35% new). Grilled yellow peach, red apple skins, hints of curry leaf, salt bush and crushed cashews. The palate is precisely as expected; concentrated and creamy, with layers of rich fruit flavours and secondary characters from the fermentation and oak. Complex and full bodied, a worthy sibling to the Chloe.
