Tasting Notes

The 2016 Old Vine Chardonnay is made from premium, single vineyard grapes grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley.

It has gentle aromas of pineapple and Meyer lemons on the bouquet.

The palate is delicious and creamy, yet having lovely, crisp balancing acidity, giving you a superb, satisfying mouthfeel. The plentiful peach flavours linger on the tight, fresh finish.

Product Name

2016 Old Vine Chardonnay

Colour

White

Wine Making

Hand harvested, gently pressed then controlled temperature fermented, with a component matured in French oak barrels on lees for 12 months, so as to add complexity, creaminess and richness to the wine.

Cellaring

Whilst this wine is excellent right now, if properly cellared, it will round out beautifully over the next 2-3 years as it matures, to become a classically, elegant, cool climate Chardonnay.

Food Suggestion

At present, this wine is an ideal accompaniment for lighter-medium style food dishes. However as it ages, it will become a fabulous wine to be enjoyed on its own.

2016 Hare ‘n’ Roo Sparkling Wine

Eden Valley

For many years our chardonnay and pinot noir grapes were sold to a leading winery as a single vineyard for the production of a very successful sparkling wine. In 2016 we decided that we should produce our own ‘bubbles’ which we called “Hare n Roo”. Why? Hares and kangaroos live in harmony together in our vineyards just as our chardonnay and pinot noir combine together to give a very high quality sparkling wine.

Tasting Notes

This Sparkling wine is made from premium, single vineyard grapes grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley. The vines are hand pruned and the grapes hand-picked.

It has a beautiful bead and a delightful colour, with a very slight pinkish hue. The aromas of apple and strawberry with a hint of yeast autolysis are very appealing.

The palate is crisp, yeasty and very tasty with elegant strawberry and cherry flavours, leading to a refreshing finish.
