The surprisingly cool, maritime conditions at Langhorne Creek allow for a slow even ripening where fresh natural acidity and varietal fruit characters are retained.
The grapes for the 2018 Reserve Chardonnay were picked from the most outstanding block of chardonnay on the property and gently pressed prior to barrel fermentation and maturation in French oak.
Elements of wild yeast fermentation, extended time on yeast lees and partial malo-lactic fermentation have added complexity and enhanced the natural citrus and nectarine flavours in the wine.
An elegant wine with a long and textured finish, which has the capacity to age gracefully in the bottle over the next 6 to 8 years
