This is the first release of the Masters Chardonnay from Helen and Ben Masters home block 4km south of town. Here the soils have a higher clay content which brings concentration while the cooler aspect of the site heightens florals and acidity. These vines now 21 years old and are showing a singular expression unique to this site.

Bob Campbell MW, 96 points “ … concentrated and very classy chardonnay that gives a nod in the direction of Burgundy.”
