2021 was a vintage of exceptional quality.  A wet winter, mild spring and temperate summer produced wines that will live long in the memory and in the cellar.  The wine shows beautiful balance, intensity, line and length.  Winemaker: Tom Carson

The mild and even ripening conditions during harvest ensured every parcel of fruit was handpicked at exactly the right moment (between 1 and 22 March) - from blocks 1, 4, 6 & 10. These blocks are planted on sandy clay loam soils with iron shot stone and light medium clay. Careful handling in the winery ensued, some parcels were crushed and some whole bunched pressed. The juice was transferred to 500 litre French oak barrels for natural fermentation. A 25% portion of which were new. The wines were aged on lees in oak for a further 10 months, prior to bottling in February 2022. The chardonnay clones in this wine are 70% Mendoza and 30% P58. (Alc 13%)
