All our grapes are hand harvested into shallow picking crates to eliminate bruising. Our harvest starts at first light to ensure the grapes are still cold when processed, if necessary they will be stored in a cold room before pressing. Three different quality fractions are selected at pressing. Cuvée – high quality free run juice, Première Taille – first extraction, Deuxieme Taille – 2nd extraction.
The juice is settled using enzymes and is then racked. The clean juice goes through a cool fermentation. A small fraction is fermented in 2nd – 4th fill barrels and the large majority is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. No lees contact is given post fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is avoided.
Only once fermentation is complete does blending take place. Careful consideration is made to produce a wine with length and acidity to last, yet still have elegance and finesse on the palate.
Elegant citrus blossoms with fresh lime aromas. Secondary aromas of nougat, roasted nuts and hints of proving dough.
Bright, fresh and elegant palate entry. Aromas of grapefruit, ripe lemon and pear forms a structured mid-palate. The mousse shows finesse and texture with a restrained presence. Length develops delicately on the palate with fine tertiary aromas of caramelized honey, vanilla and dried fig.
91% Chardonnay, 9% Pinot Noir
