2022 Two Mile Hill Chardonnay


Karel Schaefer Loves chardonnay, a conversation started back in 2015 about planting some vines to satisfy the thirst. Karel & Family planted their first vines at Two Mile Hill in 2017, it’s a 4 acre site with 3 different soil types & 3 varieties. The Chardonnay is planted on rich red volcanic soil with a south slightly west facing slope with the clone i10V5, this is the second vintage produced from Two Mile Hill, with the exciting 2023 patiently waiting for its winter bottling & a lovely looking crop from this years harvest 2024. Located 5km form Eastern Peake from which you can still see our vineyard & seems to be one-two weeks earlier than us with flowering & harvest dates. Farming is shared between Karel & us under our guidance. 

Harvested & whole bunch pressed on 24/03/2022, fermented naturally in 300L hogs heads & 228L barriques, during élevage there is no racking, its left on full lees, no interference with the lees, the wine always goes through full malo on its own accord, a small amount of sulphur post malo, racked 3/4/2022 to stainless tank no fining or filtering, bottled 11/10/2022 A small amount of sulphur post malo & pre bottling.
