This fine, elegant Chardonnay is produced from fruit grown on our Pemberton vineyard. The fruit was hand harvested in April 2009 and the wine was matured for 6 months in French oak casks before being bottled in December of that year. The fruit flavours combine tropical hints, buttery texture and punchy ripe fruit. It is mouth filling and rich, with excellent balance of oak and a tight acid structure, with a clean and elegantly refined finish.This wine will reward with careful cellaring up to 12 years. Only 250 cases were produced from this great vintage.

The Kosovich approach to chardonnay is to use fairly simple methods to ensure the fruit characters are retained. This one, sourced from Pemberton, is a perfect example of that approach. Creamy with a little stone fruit and cashew characters on the nose. The palate is well balanced with deep fruit concentration and good length. CELLAR 5 years
