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.
“This is a profound, deeply layered Quartz. There is lemon, white and orange blossom aromas intermixed with mineral, chalk, spice and mealy complexities. The palate is intense, full, voluminous, poised, subtle, flowing and very long. Here there is a serious amount of wine that is beautifully balanced and mixes depth of flavour with restraint, vitality and harmony.” - Bindi Wines
