Fermented in 500 L puncheons, 15% were new and solely indigenous yeast from the vineyard. Only the third release of Sound of White Chardonnay. 2 Ha of 8 year old Sauvignon Blanc was grafted over to Chardonnay (clone B95) in 2013 on a beautiful, clay rich site at Sound of White Vineyard. This strong clay presence provides an inherent richness and density to the fruit, ideal for the style of  Chardonnay that we are aiming to produce.

Vintage

The 2018/2019 growing season wrapped up with exceptionally clean fruit and low yields that developed excellent concentration and flavour. January through March was hot and dry with little rainfall and combined with the low yields meant harvest started earlier than usual. It also allowed picking decisions to be made in the vineyard on flavour and reaching optimum ripeness.
