The Bullswamp Vineyard was planted in 1982 by the Farrington family at the very edge of the Warragul township. The Baw Baw Chardonnay comes from the youngest plantings – 25 years old – of Chardonnay (I10V1 clone) that we farm. Deep, rich volcanic soils nourish what are dry-grown grape vines and elevation is 100m. This section of the vineyard faces south, with moderate airflow and exposure, producing fruit-driven wine with depth and minerality.

WINEMAKING: The fruit was hand-harvested into 15kg baskets and transferred to the winery. Whole clusters were crushed into the press and drained off into a tank for settling. Primary fermentation took place in barrique (30% new) over three weeks, followed by complete malolactic fermentation. Lees stirring occurred twice towards the end of primary fermentation, then once more at the completion of malolactic fermentation.

NOSE: Candied lime, mineral, citrus blossom and a hint of toast.

PALATE: A rich intertwined complex of flavour. Extremely mineral with understated power. Very precise character or lime, marmalade and a powerful minerality. Such a pleasure to drink with intense depth and persistence.
