The coolness of our estate site allows us to make this unique style of Australian Chardonnay. We get such high levels of natural acidity in the grapes that we are able to complete malolactic fermentation (and get the added complexity from this) and still retain the appealing racy acidity. The extended lees contact helps flesh out the palate but still keeps the wine fresh and vibrant.
Golden straw in colour, this classic Macedon Chardonnay shows varietal characters of honeyed pear, apple and citrus. Extended lees maturation and stirring assists in giving the palate a superb textural quality along with an attractive line of acidity
Grown at our estate vineyard with a top elevation of 770m ASL. Seriously cool. Razor sharp canopy management. Harvested by hand with fruit sorting occurring in the vineyard.
Partially whole bunch pressed and partially crushed bunches into press with stalks. Full malolactic fermentation. Lees maceration included lees stirring weekly.
