Nose
An amalgam of aromatics working in harmony ?primarily yellow stone fruit (nectarine) and honeydew melon with soft pistachio nougat? and enchantingly/unexpectedly from this white grape variety, blueberry bavarois!
Barely recognisable savoury French oak imparts a sensitive touch to sign off on a complex and appealing nose.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS
Above-average winter and spring rainfall offered the vines in the Adelaide Hills healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. September rainfall was significantly above the long-term average for the region.

Cool conditions slowed vine growth in early spring with temperatures eventually warming in October. A mild and mostly dry start to summer was followed by two significant rain events after Christmas. January was mild with few hot days and some unseasonal rain. Moving into March, mild weather continued to slow ripening with cool nights and warm days persisting until harvest. An excellent vintage for Adelaide Hills Chardonnay.

HISTORY
The first vintage was in 2015.
