The fruit was harvested from our picturesque Medway Vineyard, deep in the Awatere Valley. The fruit was gently pressed, juice settled, then lightly racked. A long, cool fermentation took place over four weeks with a yeast selected for capturing fresh varietal expression. Post fermentation the wine remained on light lees and was then stabilised and filtered, prior to bottling.
Winemaker Tasting Notes
This Chardonnay from the Awatere Valley is brimming with varietal character, balance and elegance. The nose is lifted and fresh with notes of citrus flower and crushed oyster shell. The citrus & stone fruit characters on the palate and balanced acidity combine to create an expressive, modern style of Chardonnay. Beautiful with barbequed fresh seafood.
