100% Nannup Chardonnay was pressed straight to French oak of which 30% was new for fermentation.  The yeasts indigenous to the vineyard were allowed to weave their magic and ‘voila’, we have a wine of great character that would sit comfortably alongside some of the finest Burgundy can offer.  Crisp fresh pear, zesty citrus, spicy oak assault the senses, all you need is to imagine you are in the dusty barrel halls of Meursault.

"Pressed straight to oak (30% new) and wild fermented.  This is good stuff: the wine has considerable power, the impact of the pink grapefruit flavour immediate, and not backing off as the wine reaches the end of the palate." - James Halliday Wine Companion 2018

$340 PER CASE / ~$28 PER BOTTLE!
