Geographically a mirror image of Samantha’s Paddock, this block is located in the perfect spot to capture both the cool breeze blowing from the Great Dividing Range and the morning sun afforded by its east-facing orientation. Due to its elevation, angle and aspect, it is historically harvested much later than traditional Valley-floor Chardonnay. It is our ode to the Grand Cru Montrachet of Burgundy.
Elevated aromas of lemon curd, guava, quince, golden apple, cracker biscuit, lovage, cardamom and caraway seed with elements of flint and struck match. This ‘amplified’ counterpoint to our single-vineyard Estate Chardonnay balances an integrated subtle line of natural acidity with ample varietal expression. The understated persistent flavours marry creaminess and a biscuit-base texture through the long finish.
