Chardonnay vines planted on our estate in the early 2000s, are carefully tended to produce wine with depth and minerality. Grown on ancient sheet limestone with red desert sand overlay, the low yielding fruit was influenced by seasoned French oak.

Harvested in different stages to capture optimum ripeness to extract the fresh fruity flavours, the 2023 vintage was cooler than average, reaching far into April. These conditions allowed the fruit to slowly and gently ripen, allowing the wines to display vibrancy and style.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw in colour with a golden hue, it's gently fragrant on the nose with peach, melon and subtle vanilla aromas, leading to a succulent palate cradled with nutty toast and oyster shell minerality. Finish is long and smooth for this medium bodied white wine. Best served chilled paired with pan seared salmon or creamy crab pasta.

Expert Reviews

Elegant and complex with white flesh stone
fruit, lemon peel, nougat and hazelnut aromas, it's beautifully weighted and flowing in the mouth, delivering creamy texture backed by well-balanced
acidity. Attractively composed and expressed, making it immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2027.
