Quick Overview

Pale in the glass as a young wine, but will develop pale gold tints with time in the bottle. Year after year the fruit from this vineyard exhibits ripe lemon and grapefruit characters. This is interwoven with subtle oak and lees and MLF derived creaminess. Harmony and balance have become two of the hallmarks of our Swamp Reserve style. This wine has fineness and structure, yet is also incredibly complex and long.

Winemakers Notes
We hand harvested the best fruit from the top of our Middle Road Chardonnay vineyard. This same vineyard has been providing fruit for our Swamp Reserve Chardonnay since 1989. The fruit was chilled and trucked to Auckland for whole bunch pressing. Fermentation, MLF and aging occurred in French oak (about 25% new).

Cellaring
Our Reserve Chardonnays drink beautifully after about 12 to 18 months, and then cellar out to around five years in the correct environment.

Food Matches
Full flavoured chardonnays are great food wines, especially richly flavoured meat dishes such as lamb, pork and duck, and seafood – crayfish, salmon and trout. Accompanying sauces could include citrus, apple, nuts, mushrooms and aromatic herbs.

Suggested Wine List Description
Full, rich and complex white wine, with delicious sweet fruit flavours, well balanced with nut and oak tones and great length of flavour.
