Sourced from the foothills of the Western part of Elgin, CY548 is a clone that came from cuttings planted in Corton-Charlemagne in Burgundy. True to its origin, the profile reflects the more austere and robust structure profile that yields a pulverised stone texture alongside razor-edged acidity.

The wine rested in barrel for 4 months prior to judicious sulphuring and a further 7 months maturation in barrel before racking and bottling. A small number of artisanal coopers were selected, all from Burgundy and only French oak was chosen. Importantly, this wine was micro-vinified as a separate batch. In 2018, 59.4% was new oak; 100% using 228 litre barrels.

Alcohol: 13.52% | pH: 3.38 | RS: 2.4 g/l

Tim atkin


A wine that can be a little shuttered and restrained in its youth, this has a winning combination of subtle reduction and understated power. Textured, focused and refreshing, with notes of oatmeal and lemon butter, tangy acidity and minerality to spare. 2023-32.
