“I first visited Burgundy, the spiritual home of great Chardonnay, in 1995. Apart from the amazing vineyards and wines, what struck me was the sense of tradition, community and the pursuit of small improvements in all aspects of their production. Their winemaking was incredibly intuitive, left plenty of room for nuance and there was a lot of joy in the process.” Rod.
Think Burgundy. Lusciously flavoured grapes of lemon, melon and nectarine. Planted on old river terraces, pressed and run to French oak barriques for wild ferment, and natural malo. Struck stone and flint on the nose, lemon curd and stone fruit.
