The 2023 Chardonnay is made with fruit from the Wilyabrup sub-region. There are 3 different clones of Chardonnay on our property being the Gin Gin, Davis and Dijon clones.
Rains during the month of January helped to freshen up the vineyard and top our dams and water tanks. Fortunately these rains were followed by sunny dry conditions and we found minimal disease pressure in the vineyard, which was mitigated with a little crop thinning. Yields have returned to normal cropping levels.

All three parcels were hand-picked on the same day and chilled overnight. The following day the grapes were tipped as whole bunches directly into our press and gently pressed off into a tank. Natural settling occurred overnight and the cloudy juice was then sent to French oak barrels twenty-four hours later. Wild fermentation was completed in a barrel and allowed to mature on its own lees for nine months, with minimal stirring during this time, to maintain freshness and natural acidity.

This wine is 100% wild fermented, the nose if full of stone fruits and honey blossom, with notes of chalky crushed shell. The palate is full of lime and pear with beautiful structure and length. Aged in French oak for eight months. This wine drinks beautifully now and will benefit from cellaring.
