Vinified predominantly from fruit grown to very low yielding Mendoza clones, planted ton the neighbouring Craighall property over twenty years ago. Hand picked grapes are whole bunch pressed through a Willmes membrane, indigenous yeasts initiate ferment of the freshly pressed, unsettled juices, at temperatures of 15┬░C to 20┬░C, in a combination of seasoned and new Burgundian oak barriques. These wild yeasts slow the onset and duration of ferments, achieving a textural, multi faceted wine. Lees stirring is employed to enhance complexity and vinosity, some components are treated to malolactic, ferments are arrested as the perfect balance is reached, followed by ageing on gross lees for a year. Alcohol 13.5%
 
Bright, light straw colour. Aromas of nectarine, white peach and delicate grapefruit blossom are full of promise even before the first sip. A very fine entry opens out to a silky, supple mid palate, a simply delicious spread of flavours and weight of fruit. Enticing, freshly baked, old fashioned apple pie scents, irresistible. A creamy, mealy character further fills out the perfectly balanced palate.

Bass Phillip Estate Chardonnay 2013
Gippsland
The tranquil pasturelands of Gippsland share an affinity for Chardonnay with the timeless terroirs of La Bourgogne. Bass Phillip pioneered viticulture here, introducing the noblest of white grape in the 1980s. Phillip Jones maintains strictly controlled yields on his fastidiously husbanded Leongatha property, a costly regimen of pruning which permits less than a tonne and a half of fruit to the acre. The reward comes in the form of a buttery Montrachet style, brimming with grapefruits, bracing with crystal minerality and framed by a veneer of polished golden oak.

Bellarmine Chardonnay 2016
Pemberton

Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from Bellarmine vineyard in the high quality cool climate region of Pemberton. Fruit is harvested throughout the cool of night. Juices are gently pressed off skins and separated from the harder solids. Juices are cold settled for two days, the clear juices are racked away from lees and innoculated. A portion is transferred to oak for vinification, the balance remains in tank. Ferments are temperature controlled to achieve a gradual drop in sugar levels whilst retaining maximum flavour. Upon completion, the wines are battonaged to infuse complexity and introduce a touch of creaminess, followed by a term of maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels.
 
Pale yellow hues. Stonefruits and nectarine, citrus with subtle oak. Complex palate with citrus, green apple, and nectarine flavours. Subtle spicy oak, tight acidity and a creamy texture, supported by crisp minerality, extended palate length and persistence of flavour.
