**Gold Medal Winner at Chardonnay du Monde 2023 in France**

This wine is made from Chardonnay clone 76 from the east side of the Stonebridge Estate vineyard, Block 14. The grapes were hand-harvested into small bins and kept clonally separate, then pressed and wild fermented in French Oak barrels. The low-intervention, wild fermentation took 2 months to complete in 33% new French oak puncheons and barrels. Wine completed its malolactic-fermentation at its own pace. This small batch was aged a total of 22 months in barrel before bottling. Only a small fraction of barrels were selected for this reserve batch.

Wine has developed a complex nose of citrus and apple and hints of quince supported by a well blended bouquet of spices and vanilla. The acidity is fresh, hinting a long finish.
