The wine displays a tight, youthful bouquet of citrus and stone fruit, with hints of lemon, nutty nuances and complex oatmeal notes.

The palate is refined and textural with an integrated acid to balance.

The wine shows its Marlborough origin exhibiting minerality, balance and length.

100% Chardonnay.

This wine has been crafted using natural winemaking techniques and minimal handling. Predominantly hand harvested and whole bunched pressed, the free run and the lightest pressings were transferred straight to oak barriques with full solids for fermentation. A proportion of the barriques were allowed to undergo natural fermentation while the remainder were inoculated with desirable Chardonnay yeasts. Fermented warm, the wine was allowed to reach dryness before undergoing partial lees stirring and malolactic fermentation. After 10 months in barriques on yeast lees the wine was lightly fined, filtered and bottled.
