Product Description

Toolangi's F Block--home to 17-year-old vines of the Gin Gin clone--has been identified as growing the best of the best Chardonnay that this Dixon's Creek vineyard produces. From the highest parcel of vines on the property, the first release under the new regime fruit was crushed and pressed with full solids straight to oak (20% new), and both primary fermentation and malolactic were powered by wild yeasts. The wine then spent eight months on lees before bottling.

"Complex, delicious, regal-feeling, detailed chardonnay of softness, fruit forward nature and general appeal. Lots of subtle stone fruit, nougat, brown rice and oatmeal scents, similar flavours, broad but appealing texture with a cool, flinty-saline-minerally-acid undertow set under. Has a very distinct character, drinkability and appeal. Right in the zone." 96 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

Low crop, hand-picked, 17yo vines. Fermented wild, primary and secondary, before going into 20% new French oak for 8 months. Its bones are made of steel, its flesh is made of peach, there's gold in its hills of flavour and a ring to its finish. The table will have to do, but a bottle of this wouldn't look out of place sat perched on a throne. So much meal, so much length, so much mouthfeel to bring it all home." 97 points, Campbell Mattinson, Winecompanion.com.au
