Growing and Making

Production Notes
From blocks three and four in our Lenswood Vineyard. First planted in 1999, it has east and west facing aspects and reaches 500 meters above sea level. The soil is brown loam over clay with some broken shale and stone on the ridges. Whole bunches were chilled overnight, then pressed, before fermentation in new and used 500 litre French oak puncheons. The wine spent a further 10 months in barrel with gentle stirring.

Story

Winemaker Notes
Since purchasing the vineyard in 2012, significant investments have been made to further enhance the site. It had always shown potential for a single site wine and in 2014 a small amount was selected for our first 'Lenswood Vineyard' Chardonnay.

Reviews

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front  - May 2022

The length of the palate here is impossible to deny as indeed is its elegant style. It feels calm and considered throughout, and it sails out beautifully through the finish. Whether or not the fruit is up to A Grade/Gold Medal standard is the question: nectarine, apple and pear flavours come infused with cedar and smoke, the effect both impressive and delicious. But as good as it is, it could do with just a little more power, a little more intensity. 93 Points.
