This Chardonnay has an impressive track record, having received trophies, gold medals and 90+ scores from the world’s top wine shows and wine writers, including Champion Chardonnay at the Air NZ Wine Awards. Vines are cropped at low yields, handpicked and whole bunch pressed for gentle extraction. It’s fermented on full solids in French oak barrels using indigenous yeast. Lees stirring post fermentation builds weight, texture and imparts complexity. This wine is intense and concentrated with perfectly integrated oak and a thread of natural acidity and minerality to impart freshness and balance.
