Kooyong Faultline Chardonnay 2016

Kooyong's 'Faultline' vineyard is the largest vineyard at Kooyong. Although in line with the Farrago vineyard to the west, the Faultline block is less sloping and a geological fault runs along the south-western end, beyond which the soil becomes quite poorly drained and unsuitable for viticulture. Before this fault however the soils are better drained and reasonably high in organic matter. There are few sandstone pebbles present in the Faultline vineyard and the resulting Chardonnay is always richer and fuller than Farrago.

The Kooyong 'Faultline' Chardonnay is bright lemon colour with aromas of white peach, nectarine and potter’s clay. The palate is powerful with fleshy apricot notes anchoring the Faultline minerality. Long and impressive.
