Our “flagship” wine combines ripeness of the fruit with the softness of the wine itself, giving it a creamy and rounded fruit driven finish which is the hallmark of Catherine Vale Chardonnays.
Our Chardonnay grapes are carefully selected and hand harvested from our Rocks and Boulders and Wendy’s Pines blocks which are the most elevated blocks in our vineyard.
The resultant wine reveals fine citrus and melon fruit flavours, accompanied by the subtle vanillin of light oak treatment. Winemaker John Hordern has used some traditional methods and innovation to craft our flagship, a wine of elegance and complexity.
