Chardonnay “Hexam”

horizontal_2015-sgl-vineyard-chardonnay.20151110151026

The Yarra Valley is possibly the ultimate region in Australia for Chardonnay. Our goal is simple; add to that reputation with our definitive vineyard site planted with the finest clones to create a modern age, premium Chardonnay.

Delicate yet complex aromas of fig and citrus are supported by a ‘struck match’ character. A white fruit and melon palate is integrated with subtle toasty oak finishing long and clean.

Yarra Valley Hexham Vineyard – 100% Chardonnay

Winemaking

The fruit was gently pressed and the free run juice fermented naturally in barrel with indigenous yeasts. The wine was matured on lees for eight months and 25% of the barrels allowed a secondary fermentation to create depth and finesse. The elegant bouquet displays intense citrus and brioche character with a fresh and vibrant palate of citrus and cashew. The oak is fully integrated and it has a clean finish of great length.
