Summary: Bumblebee encapsulates all that a healthy partnership with the environment can be – a harmony with nature  through  organic, sustainable and vegan friendly practices that allow all to flourish – the vines, the plants and the animals. The Bumblebee wines have been created by Con-Greg Grigoriou and Corey Ryan to be classically and varietal-ly expressive styles that are approachable and well-balanced.

Winemaking: Fruit is harvested during the early morning hours to retain freshness and partially whole bunch pressed. A fast and precise vinification in stainless steel with minimal oxygen contact maximises fruit expression and aromatics. A cool fermentation (15 to 18 degrees) is undertaken in stainless steel tanks before maturation on lees in used French oak for four months.

Vintage 2022: A wet spring provided adequate soil moisture going in to the growing season. Windy and rainy conditions during spring resulted in lower than usual crops. The summer months were mild facilitating a long ripening period and exceptional flavour and acid balance in white wines.

Tasting Note: The nose displays fresh and fruit-driven aromas of citrus and nectarine with subtle toasty notes. The palate is fruit-driven and elegant with excellent purity. Stone-fruits and citrus flavours build to a pleasingly round mouthfeel before being carried to a dry finish by clean acidity. A very well-balanced and attractive Chardonnay that will be a versatile companion to a wide range of seafood and white meats.
