Quick Overview

Deep straw colour, with a pale green hue. An intense combination of cashew, butter, honeycomb and stone fruit characters. Medium palate weight with a rich and creamy texture. Peach and nectarine fruit flavours are perfectly complimented by toasted nuts, honey and a persistent and flavoursome finish.

Product Description

Fruit was harvested from individually selected blocks in our Frankland and Mount Barker vineyards. The grapes were picked with a ripe fruit profile to create a style of Chardonnay rarely seen these days. Direct from the press, the juice was transferred into a selection of new and aged French oak barrels for fermentation. These barrels were monitored over the cool, 12 day fermentation period, to preserve delicate fruit flavours while enhancing the textural barrel characteristics. 50% of the barrels then underwent malolactic fermentation, while regular lees stirring occurred over the 12 month maturation period, further adding complexity and a textural mouthfeel.

Peach and nectarine fruit flavours are perfectly complimented by toasted nuts, honey and a persistent and flavoursome finish.


Bright with a light-medium straw colour. Lovely aromas of fresh, toasty French oak with light buttery characters (reminiscent of a freshly baked almond croissant!) Has those 'baked pastry' characters along with the peachy/stone fruit flavours typical of Chardonnay. There's a good level of toastiness from the oak used during fermentation, complemented by the buttery pastry flavours from the malolactic fermentation. A wine with good texture and palate weight, the delicious 'peach crumble' fruit flavours are complexed by the toasty oak and a gentle acidity on the finish.
