Grown on a single vineyard in the Hawkes Bay, the fruit for this wine was picked in outstanding condition after an excellent growing season. The grapes were gently pressed to 40% new French oak. A portion was allowed malolactic fermentation & the wine was then matured for 10 months before bottling.
★★★★+ – 90 points Sam Kim – Wine Orbit – July 2017
The nose is fresh, elegant with clean and tightly bound white stone-fruit aromas along with lemon-curd and butterscotch MLF notes in a nutty, citrusy amalgam. The mouth-feel is soft in texture with fresh, lively acidity underlining the fruit. The partial wild fermentation shows good character on the nose and palate with the subtle yet creamy oak texture balancing the crisp acid leading the wine into a tight, moderately long finish. This is a tightly held Chardonnay with citrus and butterscotch flavours and a fresh, subtly creamy mouth-feel. Simply Stunning!
