2018 Wines


Conservation Coast Chardonnay


An expressive cool climate terroir driven wine. Pale gold in colour. Hints of nougat and candied sweets on the nose, custard and sultana notes on the mid palate develop into smooth lingering flavours of vanilla pods and panettone cake. Delicate toasty notes balance the sweetness of the fruit. Rich and enticing. A Chardonnay experience.

Varieties: 100% Chardonnay

Conservation Coast


The lees was stirred every day for two weeks directly after fermentation and then twice a week for three months thereafter. The wine was then racked off its lees, given a light sulphuring and allowed four months maturation before being given a light filtration and bottled.

Food Pairing

Creamy, buttery fish dishes.
