Made from 64% Chardonnay and 36% Pinot Noir. The fruit is harvested at night and pressed gently to retain fruit freshness and minimise phenolic pick up. Cold settled and fermented cool, once complete undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation and remains on lees for 6 months. This base wine is then bottle fermented and spends a further 3 years on tirage yeast lees to add further complexity to the wine.
