Tasting Notes

This is a full bodied yet elegant style of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay exhibiting aromas of peach and melon intermingled with hints of butter, grapefruit and French oak spice. Ideally suited to rich seafood or white meat dishes. Enjoy upon release or for three years following vintage.

Technical Notes

The individual vineyard parcels are kept separate and fermented in a mix of French oak barriques (80%) and stainless tanks. Indigenous yeasts are utilised for fermentation and the finished wines left on lees until blending and bottling. A percentage of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation to naturally soften the acidity.
