Vineyard + Winemaking
Winemaker - Peter Leske, AVSO Winemaker of the year 2020
Elegant and medium bodied Chardonnay. Handpicked fruit. Stored in premium Oak Hogsheads for 11 months. Another exceptional vintage on the back of one of the best ever in 2021. A wet start to the season with decent rainfall in winter and full soil moisture profiles in spring. Solid yields and great quality. Adelaide Hills experienced a very dry and mild summer, leading to a long ripening period for flavour development while maintaining great natural acidity.
