This Chardonnay for the Awakening range has been produced using hand-picked fruit from the Watershed estate vineyard.
100% barrel fermentation in New and 1yr old selected French oak barriques with the use of wild yeast has produced a wine with great complexity.
The wine exhibits intense aromas of citrus and stone fruit accompanied with notes of spice and roasted cashew nuts. On the palate, the dense creamy texture is complemented by grapefruit and mineral notes, followed by a long nutty finish. This wine can be enjoyed now or with cellaring will develop for the next 6 years.

Wine Guide 2016
A smoothly textured, complex young chardonnay combining some excellent full-flavoured fruit with astute winemaking to capture it perfectly. Multi-layered palate with cashew and stone fruit flavours spruced up with a little toasty oak. The splash of citrus adds a further lift to the creamy rich palate. Nice wine. CELLAR 5 years
