The Architect Chardonnay



The Architect inspires an original; it helps define proportion, structure, character and style in a way that relates to people and place.
We craft this wine as a response to the season. Each vintage is unique, an expression of its time and place.

Winemaking Notes
• Harvested in the cool of the night

• Indigenous yeast
• 50% barrel ferment in older French oak
• Battonage of lees to build mouthfeel and complexity
• Partial natural malolactic fermentation
• Maturation on lees

Winemakers Tasting Notes
The Architect is pale straw yellow with a slight green tinge. The nose is complex and alluring with honeyed fruit, vibrant citrus and a touch of toast.
It has a fresh palate with layers of stone fruit, savoury characteristics and creamy nuances. Bright citrus acidity gives the wine clarity and drive.
