We have long loved the wines of the Loire, with areas like Vouvray and Montlouis esteemed as our benchmarks for Chenin Blanc. In mid-2017, we ventured to the Loire Valley to meet with some of the great Chenin Blanc producers: they shared with us their philosophy and experience working with this varietal. Inspired by French traditions, we have crafted a Yarra Valley expression of Chenin Blanc using basket-pressed fruit, partial wild-fermentation, mature French oak in production, and ageing on yeast lees. Through these techniques we enhance the structure, richness and complexity to complement the delicate fruit aromas, minerality and bright acidity of this heritage varietal. A rare varietal in the Yarra Valley.
