Picked early, to retain crisp, natural acidity along with tight citrus and minerally flavours. The juice was split into three press cuts. The free run was clarified and began ferment in tank, once through the peak of ferment, half was sent to oak. Light pressings were fined and clarified, while heavy pressings were sent straight to barrel on full solids. These different parcels were blended, and partial MLF and bâttonage were used to find balance, creating a chardonnay with tight, lean fruit that will continue to open up over time, and a complex generosity providing an approachable midpalate from day one.

The Vineyard

The maritime influence at our Langhorne Creek vineyard that is created by the afternoon sea breezes allows fruit flavours to evolve without excessive sugar production. The limestone based soils create wines of power and elegance with great varietal character. This vineyard is ideal for precision control over water use on the vines and known to provide more structural wines.

There is ripeness of fruit balanced by an oyster shell minerality. The generosity of varietal shows in the palate’s 3D dimension.

Taste profile

Primary flavors

Green Apple

A wine tasting ‘green’ is not the same as having flavours from the ‘green fruit’ category, such as green apple and pear. Green apple flavour enhances wine with a tangy or crisp element.


Lemon imparts crisp, zesty notes dance on the palate. From zest to pith to juice to candied rind, from salty eggy lemon curd to sweeter tangy flesh, lemon flavour often lives where wine’s acidity crackles.


Minerality refers to a flavor profile and often a palpable sensation in the mouth. The flavors described generally have to do with rocks or fossils, such as stone, river rock, flint, gravel, slate, asphalt and oyster shell.

Secondary flavors


Wines with high acidity taste tart and zesty. White wines are often described with characteristics similar to lemon or lime juice.


Pear flavour in wine is also reminiscent of stone fruits, such as nectarine. The flavour brings a lusciousness to wine similarly to how pear levels up a cheese plate.
