Fruit from 4 vineyard blocks located in separated sub-regions: Brancott, Fairhall, Ben Morven and Central Wairau Valley.
Mix of free-draining gravel and loam based soils.
The Chardonnay is hand-picked. After gentle pressing, the juice was settled and racked, before being transferred to French oak barriques of which 15% were new. After fermentation, the wine rested in barrel for 11 months before blending. 21% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation.
