Four words that describe this wine: Big, Bold, Malo, Oaky. This Chardonnay has a big oaky bouquet and aromas of a ripe stone fruit orchard. The palate is full and luscious, with creamy fruitiness and delivers a lovely fresh acidity on the finish. A bold wine suited to dishes including smoked food, or soft cheeses.

Vineyard: Generations Chardonnay comes from our Wallops vineyard, which consistently produces high quality crops year after year.

Vinification: Picked in the dead of night, the wine is gently pressed and cold settled for 12 hours before it is racked off the heavy lees. The light lees, still in suspension, give the wine some added depth and complexity while fermenting. The wine is then left to go through wild ferment and once started it is barrelled down to oak to complete a warm fermentation, producing complexity, great autolysis characters, weight and mouth feel. 

Bouquet: This Chardonnay has a big oaky bouquet and aromas of a ripe stone fruit orchard. Palate: The palate is full and luscious, with creamy fruitiness and delivers a lovely fresh acidity on the finish.
