The grapes for this wine are from our east-facing Summit Vineyard which collects more of the morning sunlight and less of the intense, direct afternoon heat. Vineyard altitude ranges between 330m and 360m above sea level, and the soil consists of sandy loam over red-orange clay, sandstone and ironstone. Fruit for our Single Vineyard Chardonnay comes from a small section in the middle of this vineyard where the balance of topsoil over subsoil is optimal for vine balance, flavour concentration and structure. The entire farm is certified biodynamic and is farmed with the rhythms of nature, tending towards a self-sustaining system without the use of synthetic chemical inputs.

The Chardonnay grapes are hand harvested gently into small 15kg crates, then whole bunch pressed with minimal settling into new (30%) and old French oak barriques (228L). Fermentation begins spontaneously with wild yeast from our vineyards and winery, with malolactic fermentation occurring naturally. Wines mature on full lees for 11 months with no battonage. A small dose of sulphur is added at blending, just prior to bottling. No enzymes, no fining, no filtration.
Closure: Natural Cork
ABV: 13.0%

2019 gave little but concentrated clean fruit, with average spring rainfall, a very dry summer and several heat-waves near harvest resulting in early picking. Importantly cold nights throughout February/March helped retained brightness in the fruit profile and high natural acidity.
