A light and easy rendition with enough stone fruit and citrus to please. The palate is soft and a layer of creamy lees adds some depth. A chardonnay to drink now and enjoy without another thought.
The label tells us the wine was made with minimal intervention and natural fermentation at Yabby Lake. Delicious chardonnay on a simple trajectory, but delivers verity of fruit in peachy juiciness, apricot richness, some green melon bitterness and all that seasoned with some smooth, sweet-nutty lushness. Rolls around the palate nicely, feels fresh but delivers a bit of opulence too. Four square in the best sense, you could pull this out of the dictionary and be pleased.
Very light straw/grey colour, with a simple, youthfully undeveloped bouquet of fruit-driven herbal notes. A trace of malt, too. The palate follows on faithfully: it's light-bodied, lean, crisp and dry to finish with a dab of tannin grip, in acceptable balance. A basic chardonnay, well presented.

Style GuideDry Sweet
APPEARANCE: Intense pale straw colour. AROMA: Lifted aromas of clean citrus notes, stone fruit and a subtle hint of spicy French oak. PALATE: A tightly focused palate, with lovely balance and a long, complex finish.
The fruit was hand harvested and pressed in small batches before it was left to settle overnight. French oak barrels (500 litre puncheons) were used for fermentation (no malolatic). All wild ferments. The wine was aged on yeast lees for 10 months, and bottled in December 2019.
