Full straw-green hue; the maximum varietal fruit expression has been achieved with the right amount of guidance from winemaker Simon Black. It has layers of fleshy stone fruits balanced by fig, cashew and - most importantly - grapefruity acidity on the finish and aftertaste.

This release is just so lovely. Let’s roll out the word mellifluous and be done with it. It’s straw-coloured with a hint of green, rolls honeysuckle, lactose and white peach flavours through the palate, and is darted with grapefruit and citrus through the finish. Cedarwood oak plays an appropriate role, adding both flavour and texture. It’s a joy to drink. Essence of chardonnay.

The Mornington Peninsula is located approximately one hour south of Melbourne. A cool maritime climate,the region is virtually frost free, but is susceptible to high winds. Rainfall is moderate, throughout winter and the growing season. Most of the vineyards are located between just above sea level and 200 metres. Soils range from weathered volcanic soils to sandy loams and friable well-drained clays. Mornington Peninsula is best known for making elegant cool climate Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and sublime Pinot Noir.
