Elegant and inviting, distinctively toasty bread crust, white peach and biscuit combine with layers of citrus fruit and zest.

Winemaking and Viticulture 
Winemakers:

Stewart Maclennan, Hamish Clark and Kyle Thompson 

Winemaking:

Hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, the free run Chardonnay juice was steel tank fermented and left to undergo malolactic fermentation until late spring, stirred on lees throughout. The Pinot Noir was lightly pressed, fermented cool in old French barriques and allowed to mature on light lees until blending in early January of the
next year to prepare for tirage nearly one year from the harvest date. The bottle fermentation took place over 6 weeks and bottles were left to rest for 35 months until being disgorged and liqueur de dosage added.
