If you like big, voluptuous Chardonnays the Arsonist is for you. There is enough sumptuous fruit and toasty oak to satisfy the classic-California Chard lover. The estate fruit went from vine to crusher in less than 30 minutes, arriving well before sunrise to ensure the fresh, fruit flavours were preserved. They used a yeast cocktail (a mixture of their winemaker’s favourite compatible yeasts) in all the lots to ensure that complex fermentation characters evolved. These lots were barrel fermented, with frequent stirring of the lees. 100 % of the barrel lots went through malolactic fermentation. There is a whole lot of love involved and that truly shines in the bottle.


a heady bouquet of sun ripened stone fruits, butterscotch, warm baking spices and layers of toasty, vanilla, and coconut oak.


classically rich and luscious with dense flavours of butterscotch, Crème brûlée, honey and pineapple. An underlayer of toasty oak and caramel from barrel aging adds complexity. Tropical flavours, so characteristic of the Dunnigan Hills appellation, add a fresh balance. The creamy texture and bright, crisp fruit linger in the finish. No need to wait, big, rich, and satisfying right now, perfect with crispy pork belly.
