We were so impressed by the fruit off our Craneford Vineyard in previous years, that we saw much promise in producing a premium interpretation of the Chardonnay variety. Whilst being a modern, light, new-world expression, we also believe this will appeal to the lovers of the style made famous by the great vineyards of Chablis in France’s Burgundy region.

Winemakers Comments

A very dry winter and spring were followed by hot and dry conditions during summer, which necessitated the use of supplementary irrigation to ensure healthy canopy growth. Despite the challenging conditions, numerous visits to the vineyard by the winemakers and viticulturist ensured optimal flavour ripeness at harvest. The fruit was hand-picked and delivered immediately to the winery where it was whole bunch pressed. The juice was then cool fermented with a neutral wine yeast to dryness, in French oak. The combination of these processes were critical in preserving the delicate aromatics, whilst minimising extraction of phenolics. - Brock Harrison
