About the Lane Vineyard’s Occasion Wines: The Lane Vineyard Occasion wines were first created in 1996. From the highest quality parcels of fruit within our vineyard these wines are determined by their vine age, purity, depth and spectrum of flavours.

Low yields provide fruit concentration and structure. Each variety is hand picked, handled gently in the winery & aged in the finest quality French Oak. Occasion wines, they are complex, structured and fine.

Vinification and Maturation: Closely planted (4166 vines/ha) to highly desirable Dijon clones which show a wider array of flavours at lower alcohol. The handpicked fruit is fermented in new and seasoned French oak and left to do its own thing.

This is the delicious style of Chardonnay that we love to drink. Refined, racy and delicately textured with The Lane DNA minerality.

2018 VINTAGE

Cool temperatures and below average rainfall throughout spring resulted in even flowering and a healthy fruit set, with some varieties requiring crop thinning. A warm to mild summer with few heat spikes provided ideal ripening conditions and minimal disease pressure. A warm period in April helped late varieties ripen fully, and ensured an outstanding vintage.

2019 VINTAGE

An unseasonably dry winter was balanced out with above average rainfall in June and August ensuring optimal soil moisture at budburst. Cool temperatures early in the season resulted in evening ripening and good flower development. A cold spell at fruit set resulted in very low yields across all varieties. A heat spike in January ensured optimal ripeness of fruit combining with low yields to produce fruit of far above average flavour intensity.
