The Reserve Chardonnay represents a blend of our top Chardonnays, with the 2019 vintage a blend of the KBS (67%), Thompson (16%) and Gainsborough Park (17%) vineyards. Each component was whole bunch pressed and fermented separately in puncheons (average 34% new), with 66% of the selected barrels having completed malo-lactic fermentation. Whilst looking for vineyard fruit purity when choosing barrels for our single vineyard releases, we take a slightly different approach for our Reserve blend, selecting barrels that show a touch more winemaking character, though invariably the vineyard characters of each vineyard still manage to shine through, which is always a delight to see.

The 2019 Reserve Chardonnay is a real display of the lemon, lime and spice aromas that are so typical in our region. Easily the most closed of all our 2019 Chardonnays at the moment, it feels like a wound up coil of potential power. There are hints of talc-like savoury lemon, with a nice hint of toasted oak and ferment complexity, but this is a wine that will unravel over the next 6 months and beyond. A real thinking person’s Chardonnay.
