Product Description

Fruit for this wine came from three different parts in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. The vineyard is planted on undulating north- and east-facing slopes and has duplex soils of ironstone gravel and loam over a clay subsoil. The vines are all from the low-yielding (Mendoza) clone renowned for its “hen and chicken’ combination of large and small berries in the same bunch. This results in highly concentrated fruit flavours. The vine canopy is trained on a combination of vertical shoot and Scott Henry trellis to allow increased air circulation. 
Winemaker Notes
The fruit is lightly pressed into stainless steel tanks and allowed to settle for 24 hours. The juice is then racked off its heavy lees to 500-litre French puncheons for wild yeast fermentation. Some barrel stirring through fermentation and post fermentation occurred resulting in a wine with complexity and individuality. The wine was transferred out of barrel after 10 months on lees before being bottled. Minimal sulphur additions made prior to bottling. 
Tasting Notes
100% organically grown Chardonnay from the Isolation Ridge vineyard. Lifted blossom florals and white stone fruit. Lovely minerality. It has lovely generosity on the front palate, well integrated oak that leads into an elegant, soft and focused palate. There is a complex textured component which plays beautifully with the acid to create a delightful and charming Chardonnay.
