"Hand-picked and sorted batches from each vineyard... The weight and balance of the wine have been precisely calibrated, opening with a floral bouquet leading into an assemblage of citrus (grapefruit), stone fruit (nectarine) and melon, oak providing a tattoo of grilled nuts." 96 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, August 2017.

Background

The Marchand & Burch Chardonnay is sourced from two vineyards, one in the Porongurup and one in Mount Barker. The Porongurup region takes its name from the ancient, granitic bolder-like landform that dominates the landscape. Our vineyard sits at an elevation of 333m on the warm north-facing shoulder of this volcanic outcrop. Planted to the gin gin clone, yields are typically low, berry size irregular and flavours, sweet and intense. Located on the eastern or Porongurup boundary of the Mt Barker sub-region, the Mount Barrow vineyard is dedicated to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for still and sparkling wine. The unique attributes of this site include an elevation of 380M and a panorama of vineyard aspects from north to south facing. Planted to clone 95 and 96, the C block sits on a south east facing slope.
