Paul Bosc and Amélie Boury's Winemaker's Notes
For this new wine we sourced grapes from several of our vineyards so that the flavour profile of the finished wine will be consistent from vintage to vintage. This Chardonnay is fresh and crisp. On the nose you will find notes of apple, grilled pineapple and a little nuttiness thanks to the extended lees contact. The acidic backbone is there but definitely in a supporting role. This wine is a crowd pleaser!
Miguel Fontalvo's vineyard manager's Notes
The grapes for this wine were sourced exclusively from our vineyards. We hand select the fruit as it is being picked to make sure only top quality grape bunches are used. We choose fruit from several of our different vineyards; silty, mineral rich soils from those located in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation and some from the heavier clay-based soils from the St. David’s Bench sub-appellation to add depth and character. All the while making sure we are farming our vineyards responsibly and sustainably, like we have done since 1978.
