Chardonnay is compelling when it has energy, giving you an impressionists’ experience of natural light. It’s an elusive quality that great wines share despite the versatility of the variety. It is more of a winemaker’s wine where observation pays off, and though it is easy to make, in contrast it is surprisingly easy to muddy the message from the vineyard.
The Family Vineyards Chardonnay is comprised of three vineyards sites from the farm, widely varied in their exposure to the sun. The vibrancy, clear cut structure and long flavour we perceive from these granite slopes is our safeguarded jewel.
