Vintage Note: A cool start to the season was punctuated by a few solid rain events in December that meant large, healthy green vineyard canopies. The final stage of the growing season was warmer than average which led to accelerated ripening, but the natural acids in all the chardonnay blocks remained surprisingly high. Fruit was hand sorted in both the vineyard and the winery. 19 is an exceptional chardonnay vintage.

Winemaking Notes: A selected parcel of fruit from each of our 5 single vineyard sites was whole bunch pressed straight to 675 Litre open top Clay Egg vessels. Indigenous yeast. No stirring, the lids were sealed with clay at the completion of fermentation. Each Egg was decanted to blend for a long chill before being racked once more and then bottled by gravity.

No fining, no filtration.

Alcohol: 13.0%

Variety: Chardonnay

Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia
