Nose: Subtle Islay whiskey peat smoke and hayshed characters envelop macadamias, white nectarine and loquats.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
100% of this wine is sourced from the very low yielding 22 year old vines at the top of the gravel hill that climbs to the south from the Rosily winery. All the vines in this part of the vineyard are of the gingin clone, synonymous with the greatest of Margaret River chardonnays.
Winemaker Notes
Pure free run juice placed straight to barrel prior to pressing. No juice settling, and high retained solids during ferment. No fining agents used. Wild fermentation in barrel. 2/3 New burgundian coopered oak, 1/3 one year old burgundian coopered oak. Daily lees stirring for one week, then monthly.
Production
This is our first ever release of reserve chardonnay, and only 336 bottles were produced
