Description

With a nod to white Burgundy, our Chardonnay aims to bridge Old World elegance with New World charm. Sun gold in colour, this wine exhibits classic, fine chardonnay aromas of lemon and apricot with a vanilla top note. Toasted coconut, orange blossom and a mineral-driven flinty character begin to emerge as the wine opens. The palate is lush and inviting with nuances of peach, pear and toasted almond. The finish is long and tense with fresh grapefruit, lemon zest and Crème Brule, all wrapped up with a hint of French oak. Our Block 6 Chardonnay sits on an eastern aspect in the northern portion of our vineyard. It consists of 1985 Oppenheim plantings and a younger component of French Dijon clones, planted in 2007. The wine underwent 100% wild fermentation in 30% new French oak puncheons and barriques. The result is a beautifully integrated wine we expect to age gracefully over the next 6 to 8 years.
