Creamy and rich, with flavours of white peaches and nectarines accented by flinty minerality. This is a single-vineyard wine with pure expressions of their variety and true reflections of the terroir of Vavasour estate vineyards.
This special bottling of Chardonnay showcases the very best of our estate vineyards and is made only in years when fruit is of exceptional quality. Careful canopy and yield management, including leaf plucking and shoot thinning, ensure great concentration and character. After hand-picking, the fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented in French oak barriques using indigenous yeast. Our 2012 vintage is made from a mix of Clone 95 for elegance and Mendoza for richness. The wine was aged in oak for 14 months with weekly lees stirring to enhance the texture and flavour.
