Located in a protected valley, Tarraford Vineyard has a discreet
microclimate, that is cooler
than neighbouring sites. A diversity of aspect
and clone provides multifaceted winemaking opportunities. Although located in a
warmer part of the valley, the site produces Chardonnay with high natural acids
(and low pH) expressing itself through its characteristically long palate, fine
tight structure and a zesty lemon/grapefruit finish.

Hand picked and
whole bunch pressed without additions.
Course settled to 500L French
puncheons.
Indigenous fermentation.
Batonnage for the first month, then
topped and let rest (maturing) for a further 8 months on lees.
New and used
tight grain French oak – 20% new, 80% older.
Coarse filtration only. Bottled
by gravity.
