A triumph of mother nature, organically grown and naturally fermented, this wine’s complex layers deliver rich and full-bodied flavours to the palate, with a tightly structured minerality typical of the clone.
Our Chardannay block, planted in 1996 consistently produces stunning fruit. The Mendoza clone, known for its low yields and ‘hen and chicken’ fruit set, provides a high skin-to-juice ratio and thus a beautiful depth and concentration of flavour.

The grapes are handpicked and whole bunched pressed, and the juice is run directly into French 500L oak puncheons. Wild yeasts from the vineyard provide a natural fermentation. The wine is left to develop in barrels for 12 months.
With very little winemaker’s influence, this wine is a testament to the quality of the Walnut Block fruit. Low in sulphr, and it’s vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Walnut Block wines evolve gracefully over time. Walnut Block Chardonnay is a stylish and complex wine that will cellar well for 5-8 years.
