This Chardonnay grows in a model vineyard with relatively loose and uncompacted soil, creating a healthy subsoil ecosystem and relatively vigourous vegetative growth. The vines’ ambition is restrained with a carefully-timed program of manual suckering, combing, and tipping during the spring. This keeps the vines focused on their fruit and causes them to develop concentrated, explosive flavours by harvest.

This wine shows fresh primary fruit aromas of citrus, lemon curd, and orange blossom. With aging of 1-2 years these characters will give way to darker toast and whiskey peat.
