About This Wine:
This is a full bodied yet elegant style of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay exh ibiting aromas of peach and melon intermingled with hints of butter, grapefruit, nuts and French oak spice.

The individual vineyard parcels were harvested separately in late March and early April and fermented in French oak barriques (10 0 %) . Cultured and indigenous yeasts were utilised for fermentation and the finished wines were left on their lees until blending in December 2015. Fifty percent of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation to naturally soften the acidity.

Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Chardonnay has a pronounced cedar and butterscotch-led nose with a core of apricot preserves, quince paste and apple pie. The palate is medium-bodied with a lashing of oak and spice characters, plus a good amount of spiced apple and stone fruit, finishing long. It's an old-school, oaky butterball, but nicely done, if you like this style." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (30th Dec 2016)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Meyer lemon, melon and peach flavors are bright, with citrus zest notes and a touch of toast. Drink now. 400 cases imported." – MW (Web Only - 2016)
