Quick Overview

Chardonnay is hand-harvested from a selection of clones in our Marlborough vineyard, whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented in French oak barrels. The wine ages in oak for a year, with lees stirring, resulting in classic Marlborough Chardonnay with tropical fruit and citrus flavours, full-bodied but finely balanced and complex.
