WINEMAKING NOTES

The Lefroy Brook vinyard is seperated from Lillian by the Pemberton-Northcliffe railway line. It is a continuation of the soil, with a well defined northerly aspect enhancing the unique micro-climate, a crucible surrounded by the cool shaded forest. it is also the oldest Pemberton vineyard, planted by the Holt family in 1982. Long-serving (and continuing consultant) viticulturist to Leeuwin Estate John Brocksopp has established 2.8ha of the Rhone trio of marsanne, roussanne and viognier, and 0.4ha of shiraz. He is also purchasing grapes from other growers in Pemberton.

FOOD PAIRING

Delicous with seafood like crabs,prawns and oysters! Also great with pasta and risottos. Why not try with some sushi!

TASTING NOTES

This Chardonnay is bright straw-green in colour, a delicious wine, full of  stone fruit, melon and fig flavours with subtle French oak and gentle, balanced acidity. A must for the Chardonnay lover!
