- The wine is purely off the old blocks of the Napoleone vineyard, planted between 1987 and 2001 using the I10V1 clone. So much flavour this year, a top tier Yarra Valley chardonnay vintage. Fruit harvested from Napoleone Blocks 2 and 11A both of which have grey loam on clay base and are South-East facing. The fruit was crushed to the press to maximise flavour and solids. Rough racked to puncheons (20% new) for natural ferment with all the solids. 40% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. Lees stirred monthly. Bottled in November 2018.
