A fresh, zesty white with a fluffy texture and oyster shell salinity we adore so much! From an organically farmed vineyard in Forreston that is going through the certification process. We hand-harvested the grapes in two passes, one week apart, to broaden the flavour spectrum of Chardonnay. Destemmed grapes were fermented with native yeast in stainless steel tanks and racked into 8 years old American oak hogsheads. The wine spent 10 months in barrels with occasional lees-stirring. Bottled unfined, unfiltered with only 30 ppm SO2 added. 32 doz produced 

"A Chardonnay with style, this has the aroma of lemon wedges served alongside salt and tequila shots (without regret). Yellow peach, orchard apples and citron tart. Unbaked pastry dough, almond flour and orange sherbert. Raw cashew cream and a zippy, lip smacking acidity. On the saline side, with a bit of a chew to the phenolics. Drink now and will cellar for up to 5 years. A wine meant to be drunk in the great outdoors perhaps with a picnic and slice of quiche." 92 Points, Shanteh Wale, Winepilot.com
