If you say you like chardonnay, riesling, pinot grigio, or any other white wine for that matter, you’ll love this. Bright, intense lemon, lime zest, grapefruit, white flowers, cream and spicy oak. Has the rails of fine, tense, contemporary Yarra Valley chardonnay, but with a little more plump and flesh. Zingy, granny smith apple acidity propels the carry. Super fine and great value.

Sourced from the bottom section of the North Eastern slope of Denton View Hill Vineyard.
Whole bunch pressed and wild fermented and matured in a mix of stainless steel tank and old French oak. Wild malo-lactic fermentation (100%). Left on full lees with occasional stirring for 6 months. Bottled without fining or filtration. Flint, talc, river stone, jasmine and citrus. Pulpy, solids-y weight from whole bunch and dirty juice ferment. Even in these warmer years the granitic soils of the vineyard ensure a clean acid line and cool fruit characters.
A warmer, dryer year but probably the most elegant, fine wines we’ve made from a hot year. A very good growing season. Despite the hot summer our unique site and granite soils always provide good freshness and acidity.
