Personalised Rising Chardonnay 2021 12.5% 750ml

Hand picked, whole bunch pressed, indigenous yeast ferment in French oak barrels (a mix of puncheons and hogsheads) – 23% new. Some barrels were left to go through malo-lactic fermentation (maybe 15%). The wine was left on lees in barrel for 10 months before racking into tank with fine lees for a further 3 months to integrate before bottling.

From the rolling elevations at the Rising Vineyard in the Christmas Hills, winemaker Anthony Fikkers crafts wines that express both the power and grace of this unique part of the Yarra Valley. Sourcing small premium parcels of fruit from emerging varietals in the vineyard, Anthony's aim is to produce wines of beauty and clarity that are surprising yet authentic. Free and unrestricted in his winemaking approach and with a philosophy of minimal intervention, each wine is allowed to express fully its origins.
