This single-block wine is sourced from just 0.5 ha of 25-year-old Chardonnay vines within the Faultline block. Compared to the Farrago block, the soil contains less ironstone and more deep clay, leading to wines containing an earthy depth and a fuller, richer palate. The fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed directly into French oak barriques (20% of which were new), and fermentation occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on lees (without battonage) for 11 months and was racked only once, directly prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.

The nose offers a complex mix of aromas – nectarine, white florals, lime, and various other citrus notes, complete with engaging spice notes of ginger and lavender. The palate is taut and direct, with powerful citrus and softer edges showing more stonefruit characters. It finishes with a stone-like grip and excellent length. Tense and tight, this wine will reward time in the cellar.
