Vineyard Notes
Chardonnay, from vines planted in 1973 was harvested at 10 baume from the 'Lochleven' Estate in Pokolbin.
Winemaking
The base wine was made without the use of oak or malo-lactic fermentation. Bottling took place in late 2011 to gain complexity from the lees. Disgorgement was done in November 2019, completing 8 years on lees. An 8 g/L dosage was used.
Tasting Notes
Melon, cashew, biscuit and yeast autolysis gives a lovely flavoursome palate with refreshing acidity.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Drinking very well now, however will continue to evolve and gain complexity in the medium term.
Food Matches
Fresh oysters or simply by itself.
