The Wine

Hand-picked and chilled overnight before being whole-bunch pressed. We gentle pressed the fruit in order to avoid excessive phenolic extraction. The wine was fermented in stainless steel. After the primary fermentation the wine was sulphured and transferred to a large cask for ageing on the heavy yeast less fo 12-months.

Medium-full bodied textural wine, supported by saline acidity, with a long persistent palate. White stone fruit and white flowers prevail, with a hint of vibrant citrus.

93 Points Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion 'So much easy going, relaxed attitude in the glass, verdicchio shines. Scents of apple blossom, Meyer lemon and green apple with a lime zestiness. Acidity is keen, a driving force, bringing freshness and elevating the wine's summery fruits. Pure, clean fruit enjoys a starring role, as it should, finishing with gentle texture to close'

About the Wine Maker

Mark Walpole (former GT Wine Viticulturist of the year) is an out and out Italo-file and responsible for much of the Italian vine material in the country through his tenure at Brown Brothers in the 90s, managing their famous nursery program. Mark’s responsible for so many of the King and Alpine Valleys vineyards we know and love today.

Fighting Gully Road and Smith’s Chardonnay Vineyards sit at atound 550m ASL in the southern end of Beechworth, overlooking the Murmungee Basin. Mark boats an impressive mix of both varietal and clonal sections (some ten different clones of Sangiovese alone), producing pure expressions of Beechworth: Chardonnay, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Verdecchio to name a few.
