After 13 years working with his Uncle Rick at Giaconda, Pete is a dab hand with Chardonnay and still a bargain at a fraction of the cost of Giaconda.

Harvested over seven picking days spanning almost two weeks from March 1st. The Chardonnay is basket pressed and the juice left to settle in a stainless steel tank overnight. The following morning, the juice is transferred to oak, including two new Stockinger demi-muid, a second use Stockinger demi-muid, two Foudre and the balance of wine to older barriques. The oak in these cellars is absolutely first class and it shows in the glass with its beautiful integration and subtlety. Wild ferment takes only two weeks and the wine sees no malolactic fermentation as the fruit weight here is already generous. The wine was fined but unfiltered early in the new year and bottled in February 2023. 

This usually Peter’s best wine and the 2023 release is no exception. White nectarine and peach, white florals and minerality. The palate weight is medium high and very long with exceptional natural acidity. Drink or hold up to a decade.
