We are very pleased to re-release the 2009 Chardonnay from the Library. Although it was a relatively small harvest, the 2009 was a stunning growing season. The Estate vines were 10 years old at the time and were hitting their stride; producing wonderful, complex fruit.

Farmed naturally and organically, the Chardonnay vines are hand-tended and the fruit is hand-harvested. The wine is naturally fermented in large French oak barrels by the indigenous yeast and bacteria that live in the vineyard (our secret sauce). Fermentation is long and slow, taking 10-12 months to complete.

Tasting Note (2019):  Cellar aged for 10 years, the wine has been allowed to develop real depth and complexity. Toasty aromas of brioche and honeyed apricots lead to layers of flavours that are rich, round and textural supported by a supple, elegant structure that is seductive and generous. 185 cases produced.
