Description

Vintage

Spring and early Summer were extremely hot and dry. A late season period of cool weather slowed ripening, allowing additional time for flavour development in the weeks before harvest.

Vineyards

The Jerome vineyard is home to our Chardonnay. The wines made from this vineyard are defined by the devigourating influence of Jerome’s sandy soils. Small, intensely flavoured bunches ripen evenly on the North facing slopes, while the characteristic fine mineral acidity lends structure and finesse.

Varietal

100% Chardonnay, Mendoza clone.

Winemaking

Carefully selected and hand harvested fruit was whole bunch pressed to French oak barrels for fermentation. 10 months in barrel allowed mid palate complexity to build over time, while the use of partial malo-lactic fermentation has retained minerality and poise.
