The flagship wine of Kahurangi which is well structured, rich and intense with ripe peach and stone fruit flavours leading to a luscious, silky finish. 100% barrel fermented
A very difficult growing season with a humid spring and rain at vintage, we managed to produce excellent chardonnay by careful vineyard maintenance and attention to detail in the winery. A hot Summer provided the base for an early vintage. Rain just prior slowed ripening down somewhat but good fruit flavours developed in the picked fruit.
