Tasting Notes

When to drink
Encourage cellaring for up to 5 years
On the nose
White fleshed stone fruits, lemon/lime and pear puree with underlying frangipani flowers and cashew adding to the wonderful purity of fruit.
On the palate
The palate is medium-bodied and tightly coiled with plenty of latent power. White fleshed nectarine, pears, and zesty grapefruit characters. Precise and pure, the fruit is complimented with subtle textural elements and a pithy grapefruit edge adding structure. The fruit intensity and the high natural acidity reflect the season and drive the wine, focusing it ideally on a crisp, lingering finish.
Product Notes
100% of the fruit for this Reserve Chardonnay is from our oldest Chardonnay vineyard, the Lagan Estate. The low yielding vineyard produces bunches with characteristic ‘hen and chicken’ architecture typical of the Gingin clone. In addition, we encourage natural fermentation of fruit from this vineyard to further emphasize the personality of this beautiful site which is directly adjacent to the winery.
