Tasting Notes:

Rich and luxurious on the nose with succulent dried apricots and vivid yellow peach, creamy complexity and a hint of roasted cashew. A wine of beauty and class with intensity that builds on the palate. Mouth-watering tangerine and slightly honeyed toasted brioche notes with earthiness and integrated oak. Elegant, vivacious and lingering finish.

This Chardonnay is a Single Vineyard Wine, named after the stately Candlewood tree that graces the centre of the Chardonnay vineyard. A powerful and appealing style of Chardonnay produced in our traditional style.

With the first winter rainfall occurring at the end of May, it was one of the driest winters, which made for a challenging year. Winter was late but cold enough to ensure good dormancy in our vines. Hot temperatures from October resulted in earlier budding than 2015. Berries were smaller than usual with pleasing flavour concentration which made for a truly unique vintage.

Fermentation takes place in modern stainless steel fermenters and malolactic fermentation, depending on the wine, takes place in barrel. After fermentation, the wine is matured in selected French oak barrels. Each barrel is specifically selected for a particular wine and wine style. Every detail is considered – the specific coopers, origin of the oak, toasting of the oak and size of the barrel.
