TASTING NOTES

Green apple, touch of vanilla and pear on the nose. Great balance of acidity and fruit throughout the mouth. Fresh apple on the front palate, creamy through from mid palate to finish. Amazing integration of oak, with vanilla on the back palate.


VINEYARD NOTES

The grapes for this bottling come from what our winemaker lovingly calls the “heart of the vineyard” – a particular area on the eastern side of the estate that he is particularly attached to, which overlaps a few different “blocks” and amazingly, when outlined in a drone photograph, is heart-shaped.


WINEMAKER NOTES

This wine is a “what if” blend. Playing with the 2018 vintage we tasted a trial or lab blend of the ten most delicious barrels of Hyde Old Wente Clone Chardonnay and fell in love.
