Winemaker's Notes

Composition: 95% Moira Chardonnay, 5% Estate Chardonnay

Racy green apple, pineapple and grapefruit, with apricot, almond and floral flourishes, illuminate the nose.  Citrus characters spread over the palate, embellished by melon, peach, pear and kiwi.  The texture, bright on entry, has a long, crisp finish.

Grapes were hand-picked, 95% from our original Moira site and 5% from the winery Estate site on October 3rd, at average grape sugars of 21.8 ° Brix. 

After whole-cluster pressing, the juice finished primary fermentation in stainless steel and remained in tank to settle and age.  Ten months later, 389 cases were bottled in August 2022.

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured  12%, residual sugar  3 grams per litre, titratable acidity 7.43 grams per litre and pH 3.27.

Dry:  3 g/L residual sugar

This vintage will drink well through 2026.

Vegan friendly.

Michael Pinkus Wine Review - December 2023
This Chardonnay shows the fruitier side of the grape, with a touch of almond hanging around on the finish. Orange peel, tropical fruits like papaya and mango lead to some semi-dried fruit on the finish with almonds and subtle spice. A truly sippable Chardonnay that seems to change every 15 minutes of its open existence - and mostly for the better.
