The elegantly structured palate is intense citrus essence complemented by lanolin, truffle oil, rich umami and bright saline characters. A rich and viscous palate with a great acid line, tannic structure and immensely persistent flavours. Intensely complex and yet retaining the vibrancy of character that is the hallmark of the House of Arras.

Winemaking Notes

Fruit for this wine was hand-picked from premium cold climate Tasmanian vineyards before gentle whole bunch pressing. Crafted from pristine Chardonnay fruit using the renowned traditional method. After 8 years of lees maturation, the disgorged wine is completed with a tailored dosage to create a style of great sophistication, character and poise

Always a favourite. There is a special mix of intensity, finesse, length and purity.
