We selected the grapes for our Chardonnay from vineyard blocks located in the Brancott, Fairhall, Ben Morven and Central Wairau Valley sub-regions. These vineyards grow a mix of our preferred low yielding Mendoza and B95 clones and the vines excel in their alluvial soils.
Each site produces a unique flavour profile and allows for an assemblage of a complex and balanced wine.
Nose: Affords aromas of stonefruit, white floral, smokey oak and spice
Taste: Fresh and lively with a bright acid backbone. Flavours abound of nectarines & peaches, juicy citrus and grapefruit pith.
Finish: Delicate texture and a fine mineral thread
