Winemaker's Notes:

The bouquet has lifted melon and peach characters with subtle buttery/butterscotch aromas. On the full-bodied, dry palate there are rich ripe stonefruit flavors with a supporting backbone of oak derived flavors. Extended time on lees has added a creamy texture to the wine, which when balanced with the natural acidity provides a long lingering finish. This wine displays classic cool climate elegance and structure of flavors. It has a great deal of finesse, yet displays all the intensity we expect from Yarra Valley chardonnay.

Viticulture: The grapes were sourced from specific vineyard sites within the Yarra Valley. All fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to maintain flavor and color intensity.
