A unique blend of grapes from two sides of Australia’s vast continent: Mudgee NSW and Pemberton WA (approximately 66% and 33% respectively). Our winemakers have cleverly blended a number of parcels with various components undergoing a combinations tank and barrel ferment, French oak maturation and partial, secondary, malolactic fermentation. It’s a terrific example of modern Australian chardonnay, where fruit and texture are the vital components, with oak playing a supporting role. Lovely pineapple and fresh fig flavours, creamy, spicy oak with a touch of vanilla and a long, textured finish
