Chardonnay (50%) predominantly sourced from 1997 and 2016 plantings (Bernard clones). Sauvignon Blanc (41%) primarily from a 1996 planting also includes a parcel of fruit from an older block which is now part of our organic farming zone. Riesling (9%) grown from 1976 and 2015 plantings. Chardonnay wild fermented in French oak hogsheads, undergoing full mlf. Sauvignon Blanc part-fermented on skins. Riesling fermented in temperature controlled tank
Ideally a blend where the best attributes of each variety complement those of the other two: rich stone fruits from the Chardonnay, tension and a herbaceous note from the Sauvignon Blanc, citrus drive from the Riesling.
