Silver Chardonnay

Stylistically produced with used oak and stainless steel tank, a refreshing nose of peach blossom & jasmine, dry honey, asian pear & pineapple continues into a textured palate showing subtle spice, citrus zest and poached pear. Fresh acidity is retained through its crisp, lingering finish.


Best enjoyed upon release through 2024 under ideal cellaring conditions.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our Chardonnay consists of grapes harvested from 4 vineyards picked on a range of picking dates, mid-September to early October, to yield a complexity of flavours and acidity. The fruit is predominantly from our Estate vineyards on the Naramata Bench. Different leaf removal strategies were employed to give a variety of bunch exposure times and subsequent flavour development. Crop levels were kept low at 3 tonnes per acre.
Production Notes
The various Chardonnay lots were hand harvested and either whole cluster pressed or pressed after overnight skin contact, settled and fermented in stainless steel tanks and a variety of seasoned French oak barrels. Fermentations were long and cool to preserve aromatics. A variety of yeasts were used to encourage complexity of flavours.
Winemaker Notes
The final blend includes 47% barrel fermented and matured on lees for 6 months with batonnage for palate development.
