CV 14



Summer on steroids – this wine is the essence of summer fruit. The palate explodes with summer fruit syrup with a golden juicy peach, apricot, and mango with pineapple thrown in for good measure. Velvety smooth, the rich texture fills the mouth with flavour from beginning to end.




Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy

Harvested in the cool early morning at optimal ripeness after a fantastic growing season, the Chardonnay and Viognier for this wine were crushed and pressed to tank for settling before fermentation.
Aromatic enhancing yeast was selected to maximise the true characters of both Viognier and Chardonnay, which were fermented separately in stainless tanks. Both varieties were fermented using careful temperature control to maximise aromas and flavour. A portion of the Chardonnay was also put through malolactic fermentation to add creaminess and richness to the palate. After fermentation, blending trials were conducted to find the best expression of both of these wonderful varieties. Then the blend was carefully fined with isinglass, stabilised, and filtered before bottling.

This wine’s wonderful palate balance and texture lends itself to a range of matches – chicken, fish, duck, cheese, seafood – enjoy!

Cellaring Recommendation

This wine should develop well over the next six years.
