Harvest Date

27th March 2015

Vineyards

Glenfern, Macedon Ranges

Viticulture

Planted in 1986, the vines are planted on deep
volcanic soils. They produce highly fl avoured
wines with great natural acids and wonderful
structure. The spring was settled and an even
fl owering result. We harvested a good crop of
ripe and balanced Chardonnay.

Wine Making

All fruit was handpicked and whole bunch
pressed then naturally fermented in used
French oak hogsheads. The wine remained in
contact with lees for 10 months before bottling
on 10th February, 2016.

Colour

Pale straw, youthful green edge

Bouquet

A complex nose of citrus, white fl orals,
pear, wheatmeal and a touch of complexing
reduction.

Palate

Pear, citrus and fi g fl avours follow on the
palate. This is a very powerful wine, long and
very intense. Acids frame the palate and add
structure. The fi nish is long and harmonious,
with some extract extending the fl ow. An
excellent expression of Macedon- with the
tension, concentration and balance- which will
age gracefully for many years.
