Tasting Note

This is a truly amazing Chardonnay with fruit, finesse and texture reminiscent of a fine Chassagne-Montrachet. From the Bannockburn district of Central Otago, top-notch fruit is barrel-fermented in French oak, leading to a wine with beautiful balance and poise. Bravo!

Winemaking

After pressing the juice goes to barrel (all French oak, 15% new), with a high solids content, most of the lots fermented with indigenous yeast, all barrels were stirred weekly and the Malolactic conversion took place in the spring. All the fruit is from the home vineyard on Cairnmuir Road. Grown mainly on a VSP trellising systems, hand pruned, hand thinned (shoots and fruit) hand leaf plucked and hand harvested.

Food Recommendation

Perfect with seafood and white meat dishes like chicken pie, prawn linguine and dover sole.

Press

  • 90/100. Aromatic and floral, zesty, fresh, and full of pear and peach characters, with a firm line of citrus-like acidity and a soft, creamy oak influence. A well-balanced and easy-drinking expression. Drink 2018-2024.
