Winery description

"Our Chardonnay comes from a combination of vineyards across the Omaka, Brancott, Rapaura and Renwick sub-regions. Their complementary soil types - the gravelly soils of the Wairau Valley and the cooler clay soils of the Southern Valleys - provide a great balance of ripeness and elegance.

After gentle pressing, the juice was settled and racked before being transferred to French oak barriques, of which 20% were new. Half of the batches were put to barrel with full solids (without racking). Following fermentation, the wine rested in barrel for 11 months before blending. 21% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation.

2019 Chardonnay is fresh, fragrant and mouth-watering. The nose is redolent of orchard fruit, white peach, apricot, blossom and warm hay. Palate The palate is
concentrated, with notes of apple and pear balanced by gentle vanilla spice, hazelnut and a subtle saline note. A dart of citrus acidity delivers freshness and leads to a long and appealing finish."
