Tasting Notes:

This wine displays a vibrant golden colour. Aromas of fresh grapefruit, grilled pineapple, star anise and toasted brioche emanate from the glass. The wine enters the palate with fresh citrus flavours leading to a creamy mid-palate with flavours of vanilla, star anise and toasted almond. There is a continuous saline and feeling of freshness throughout the tasting experience of this wine. The finish lingers with notes of toasted nuts.

The soils are all Oakleaf from Granitic origin with varying levels of Sandstone boulders in the soil. It is a deep clay rich soil. The slopes vary between South-Eastern to North Western aspects at altitudes between 300 and 360 m above sea level. The vines cropped between 6 and 7 tons per hectare. The grapes were hand picked between the 3rd and 10th February at optimal flavour ripeness sugars at around 22 to 23.5 degrees brix and 6.2 to 7.5 g/l acid.

The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and pressed to stainless steel tanks for settling overnight or whole bunch pressed after a night in the cold room with settling and subsequent racking. Only the free run juice from the best blocks is used for the Reserve Collection Chardonnay. The juice from the de-stemmed batches was then racked and run off to barrel for fermentation with selected yeast.

After fermentation the wine was topped and left on the lees with regular lees stirring for 11 months. The wine underwent partial malolactic fermentation. The barrels were all tight grain French oak 228 litre barrels of which 36% were new the rest were older barrels.
