Selected estate vineyards: HVD planted in 1984 and NVC planted in 1980
Parcels of fruit from the HVD and NVC vineyards were selected in order to get the richness and finesse that we were looking to bring to this wine. Our Estate Grown Chardonnays will always be basket pressed and matured in French oak puncheons, and this wine from the excellent 2019 vintage rested for eight months in one-year-old wood. The 2019 Estate Grown Chardonnay offers nutty cashew and grapefruit aromas, and a generously rounded, fruit-driven mid-palate. A linear oyster shell finish, vibrant, leaves you ready for the next mouthful. This is a moreish and truly satisfying Chardonnay.
Cellaring potential: 2020–25
