This 2013 Chardonnay is produced from fruit grown on a single block from the Yarraland vineyard in the Yarra Valley. It has been crafted with minimal intervention, utilising wild fermentation, no fining and only a single filtration before bottling.

Hand picking commenced on the 3rd March 2013, with fruit chilled overnight. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice went straight to new and used French oak barrels for wild malolactic fermentation. Whole berries were placed with juice in two barrels to extract additional flavour and structure. The wine stayed on lees until December and received a single filtration prior to bottling.

10 months in French oak barrels, of which 20% were new. Blended and bottled after a light, single filtration.
