From grapes sourced in the Kenton Valley, this is one example of what these guys can do with Chardonnay: one moment rich and expressive, generously fleshy, the next minute exhilaratingly racy, with a gripping under current of cool, fresh minerality. Decanting recommended. Drink now - 2022. As this is a public website, we can't fully disclose the origin of the cuvee name, other than that it is in homage to the grower that owns the single vineyard that supplies the fruit... we'll let you fill in the blanks. Brendon and Kirsty don't own any vines themselves. Instead, they take advantage of Australia's "big wine" contraction - finding growers whose exceptional fruit gets lost in huge blends, whose contracts are up, and who want to work with winemakers that genuinely care about their grapes. Not only do Brendon & Kirsty care about the fruit, they also nurture great relationships with the growers and, as a mark of respect, they name all of their single vineyard cuvees after the owners of the vines.

Press Note:

'Sourced from Kenton Valley, this Chardonnay was naturally fermented and aged for 10 months in French oak (10% new), with 9 months’ bâttonage. It is fresh, tight and flinty, with a lick of salt and well-judged lightly creamy savoury lees, which makes for approachability without compromising line or length. Bang on for a lipsmacking drinking now, whilst Swaby Chardonnay from a more elevated (600m) Piccadilly vineyard needs time to reveal of itself. 13%' - Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective
