The Home Block was the first planting of vines at the Myrtle Point property in 1995. Positioned on a limestone bluff high above the Mitchell River, the Home Block consistently produces Chardonnay of concentration and power.
Grapes picked, pressed and juice run directly into barrels for fermentation on full solids. 10 Month maturation on lees in French Oak, 30% new.
“In quite superb form. One sip and you know you’re onto something special. Fleshy, almost pulpy stonefruit, grapefruit, milk power and cedar spice. A subtle infusion of woodsmoke. It’s enchanting. Entrancing. A true delight”. 95 Points. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, March 2017.
