'Taking home four trophies and two gold medals, the Tuerong remains a standout wine across all years. Enchanting aromas of honey, citrus, white peach florals, and wet stone draw you in, but it only gets better from there. Juicy nectarine complimented by buttery pastries (think croissants) deliver a deliciously long, textural finish, and moreish drinkability. Enjoy right now.' - Chief Winemaker, Simon Black.

A single block wine of Clone 277 Chardonnay made from our newly acquired Tuerong vineyard planted in 1993. This vineyard is in the warmer and drier part of the Peninsula where fruit ripens early in the season. The afternoon sea breeze reduces any hot northerly winds. This is our only site with the Bernard clones of Chardonnay which are an important part of the Tuerong Block Chardonnay.

The fruit was whole bunch pressed with no sulphur addition at harvest and the juice is
oxidatively handled. Minimal settling follows before each batch is transferred to French
oak barriques (1/3 new) for wild fermentation and natural malolactic fermentation. The
wine is left to mature on lees, which are stirred when appropriate following appraisal.
The wine is aged for 11 months in oak prior to blending and bottling.
