A variety of premium vineyard sites throughout South Eastern Australia were chosen for this wine. Fruit was selected for its color and flavor intensity. Following harvesting, careful crushing and pressing ensured limited skin contact to enhance character whilst retaining subtlety. Some portions of fruit were fermented with French and American oak to develop complexity. Black Opal Chardonnay is bright straw in color. Aromas of peach, melon and citrus develop into a crisp and delicious finish.
