The first signs of the approaching vintage began with budburst in the early spring of 2014, as the vines shrugged off their winter dormancy. It is during this early season that weather conditions start to shape the vintage to come.
A warm spring preceded a warm, dry summer that set the stage for a promising outcome. In late January, as the grapes began to soften, the marri blossom, on which the native birds feed, was curiously absent. Another battle to be fought as netting becomes a necessity to protect the valuable crop. The middle autumn period produced intermittent and lingering rains that cooled the season and slowed the red harvest. In summary, the 2015 vintage is a mixed bag with early varieties, such as Chardonnay, producing excellent wines.

This chardonnay displays a pale straw colour with a green hue tint. Melon and peach aromas mingle with tropical fruits, and underlying zesty citrus notes. The palate is generous and lively, boasting a powerful fruit punch and balanced fine acidity. A well rounded, bright, vivacious wine with juicy fruit freshness, a fine texture, and generous length.
