Option
  • Vintage

    Sourced from Karridale in Southern Margaret River, 100% Chardonnay fruit was machine harvested with free run juice added to a mix of old French oak barrels with 1/2 being innoculated and 1/2 undergoing wild fermentation. 

    Battonage every couple of weeks was used for added complexity and texture ‘sur lie’ with extended cold settling before racking and canning in December 2019. 

    No fining agents or filtration, minimal use of sulphur dioxide and no malolactic fermation.

  • Region

     “...Karridale is the largest and southernmost section, draining south and east into the Blackwood River. 

    In addition to the gravelly soils that characterise most Yallingup, Wilyabrup and WaIlcliffe, it has substantial areas on the Chapman and Upper Chapman brooks of deep yellow loamy sands over sandy loams and clays that are also well suited to viticulture.” *
