Quick Overview

Aromas of poached pear and grapefruit are beautifully complemented by a savoury complexity reminiscent of roasted cashews and oatmeal. The combination of ‘hands-off’ winemaking and vibrant Marlborough fruit delivers a rich, textural palate with concentrated citrus and fig flavours, seamlessly integrated oak, and a persistent finish.

Chardonnay fruit was sourced from vineyard blocks located in the Brancott, Fairhall, Ben Morven and Central Wairau Valley sub-regions of Marlborough.

After gentle pressing, juice was 100% barrel fermented with a high solids content in French oak. The wine remained in 20% new barrel for one year prior to bottling. Underwent regular lees stirring and around 70% malolactic fermentation.

Winemaker’s Comments

Impressive in its youth, a complex nose offers layers of white peach, spring florals and well-integrated smoke. The palate is richly textured with fleshy stonefruit and lemon citrus. Mouthfilling, yet balanced, with fresh acidity giving shape and focus. Elegant with a lingering and lively finish.
