2017 Honey Block Chardonnay
This wine is named in honour of the nectar created by the bees and their hives situated beside our native tree lot and our treasured Chardonnay block.
Whole bunches from our Chardonnay vineyard were hand selected and picked in the cool of the early morning then destemmed without crushing the fruit. Gentle pressing followed and the free run juice started fermentation in small stainless steel tanks between 12 to 14 degrees Celsius, then finished fermentation in seasoned French Oak barriques and was left to rest for some 4 to 6 months. It was then bottled directly thereafter with minimal filtration to capture the purity of taste and texture of our fruit.
We hope you enjoy every ounce of the sweet nectar that is our Honey Block!
