The Bullswamp vineyard was planted in 1982 by the Farrington family in the early 1980’s on the very edge of the Warragul township. The Bullswamp Chardonnay comes from the oldest plantings of P58 clone on a north facing aspect of the site. Deep rich volcanic soils nourish what are dry grown grape vines. Elevation is 100m and this section of the vineyard receives the least amount of airflow relative to our other sites. The northerly aspect provides full sunlight and exposure resulting in powerful, rich fruit.

The fruit is hand harvested into 15kg baskets and transferred to the winery. The fruit is whole cluster crushed into the press and drained off into tank for settling. Primary fermentation takes place in barrique (30% new) over 3 weeks followed by complete malolactic fermentation. Lees stirring occurs twice towards the end of primary fermentation then once more at the completion of malolactic fermentation.

Nose: Peach, lime, fresh cut flowers, brioche and toast.

Palate: Fresh Peach, candied lime and hazelnut. An opulent mix of fleshy stone fruit, pear and persistent minerality.
