Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and wild yeast fermentation. Following ferment the wine was immediately sulphured to prevent malolactic conversion and then aged on gross lees for 10 months to enhance complexity. Savoury aromatics of musk and spice with textural flavours of pears and lemon juice.

Max Crus The Daily Telegraph
Defying convention and looking to the great Vin Jaune wines of the Jura region in France for inspiration this wine was whole bunched pressed to old French barriques before natural fermentation and malolactic conversion. Following ferment the barrels were moved to a well ventilated shed (away from the winery proper) where conditions were perfect for the gradual growth of the flor yeast on the surface of the increasingly ullaged barrels. Amazingly this wine has not been topped for its entire 4 year ageing period, relying on the protective properties of the yeast voile to avoid excessive oxidation. Bottling took place in May 2020 without any filtration, fining, stabilization or the significant addition of SO2.
This wine displays many of the desired nutty aldehyde (almost sherry like) characters that can be expected after prolonged ageing under flor. A complex array of flavours, amongst them preserved lemon, grilled nuts & exotic spice. A palate of tremendous breadth and length with mouth filling chalky texture and persistanct acid drive.

The Real Review - Huon Hooke
Our flagship Chardonnay, the Zumma, is an exercise in restraint. Everything you would want from a cool climate Chardonnay. Figs, stone fruit, and unmistakeable cool climate acidity.
