For 20 years we have farmed Sexton Vineyard and always kept an eye on our best performing blocks. The sum of this knowledge has led to us identifying the two blocks used in this wine as being superior and consistent each year, and so the concept for a new wine was created. Located on the steep north facing slopes of the Warramate Ranges, the Sexton Vineyard is our premium Chardonnay Vineyard. Topsoil is thin and root systems have established themselves in shallow gravelly loams above a tough rocky clay base. Bunch yields set naturally low in this environment, resulting in intensely flavoured fruit with high skin to juice ratio, hence the higher phenolics in this wine. The 96 clone delivers intense and pure fruit while the Mendoza, which produces small and big berries on the same bunch (millerandage), results in high white tannin and phenolic content to balance the citrus flavours.

Producers notes

100% handpicked from our two blocks which are consistently strong year after year: Block 2 planted to 96 and Block 12 planted to Mendoza. The grapes are handpicked, meticulously sorted in the vineyard, and the fruit is then refrigerated overnight to cool before whole bunch pressing. The juice is transferred to barrel by gravity with no settling, allowing all the solids to go to ferment. The barrel selection is all one year seasoned 500L French puncheons on full solids, all second fill 2020 oak; Taransaud and Mercurey. After primary fermentation, the wine was b√Ętonnaged to taste each month and let the barrels go through natural malolactic fermentation. Maturation for 11 months in barrel, 1 month on lees in tank and 2 years in bottle.
