At the upper end of the Chardonnay planting, where the quartz incidence in the soil is the greatest the fruit has extra complexity, finesse and intensity. This wine comes exclusively from this soil. This area is approximately half one hectare in size. The characteristics are similar in the Quartz Chardonnay to the Kostas Rind Chardonnay but all aspects are amplified here yet remain in complete harmony.
“As is usual the Quartz is more laid back and brooding. It is a deeply complex yet restrained wine. Mineral and citrus aromas as well as complex spices are evident on the nose. The palate is outstanding in its richness and volume. It is such a powerful and textural wine that is compellingly mouth filling, balanced and incredibly long. This wine will have a very long life!” - Producer Notes
