This flagship chardonnay comes from Robyn's Block, 33 year-old vines, the oldest of our estate Chardonnay plantings. Certified organic and biodynamic. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. In a warm growing season like 2012, Chardonnay reached optimal ripeness and exceptional intensity and body. An early harvest date also helped retain freshness.
Barrel-fermented and aged 12 months in French oak, Robyn’s Block Chardonnay boasts an expressive nose of citrus zest, fresh pineapple and a hint of white flower. On the palate, it delivers crisp notes of apple and pineapple, complemented by lively acidity, lush body and well-integrated oak spice.
With its refreshing citrus and apple notes, lush body and well-integrated oak, this voluptuous Chardonnay pairs beautifully with rich yet delicate dishes. Try it with oysters, creamy pea and pancetta risotto or perch topped with Hollandaise sauce!
