3 Gold, 4 Silver
French Oak Barriques
Vibrant palate of generous Clingstone peach and lemon peel entwined with almond meal and vanilla bean notes.
The palate is richly layered and Chardonnay's natural taut acidity balances the accents of French oak off in the lengthy finish.
This wine is named in honour of the nectar created by the bees and their hives situated beside our native tree lot and our treasured Chardonnay block. Our position produces grassy character, concentration and mid-palate texture, which reflect the low yields and early morning harvesting which occur during the small window of perfect ripeness. 2016 was a "textbook" vintage. Set during flowering was exceptional. A short heat wave in January occurred prior to veraison, which had no effect on our fruit. The following four weeks were dry, mild, and sunny weather and from late February Mother Nature provided just what the vines needed, and the resultant fruit was top notch.
