The Dragonfly Chardonnay is designed to capture the essence of this noble variety in its pure form.

Vibrant and refreshing in style, it highlights the classic white-fleshed stone fruit and almond blossom characters of the variety, combined with the texture, complexity and depth of flavour achieved from the better vineyard sites of the southwest.

Striking aromatics of white peach, citrus flowers and almond meal complement oak spice.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes

Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from our Henty and Cotterill blocks planted to the Mendoza or Gin Gin clone in 1998.
Production Notes
70% of the wine was naturally fermented in pre-loved French oak barriques to build complexity through barrel fermentation, whilst the balance was fermented in tank, retaining freshness and bright fruit aromatics. Temperature in oak is allowed to peak at 22 degrees celsius, whilst tank fermentation is maintained at less than 15 degrees Celsius.
Winemaker Notes
A cold and wet Spring in 2016 shaped a milder vintage in 2017, which was further interrupted by February and March rains. The resulting conditions led to a lengthy ripening period, and a 2-3 week delay to start of vintage. Lower temperatures at ripening are beneficial to retain freshness and elegance, and wines of lower alcohol and crisp acidity.
