Description

“Made from a blend of grapes grown 50% on the Tuki Tuki vineyard and 50% on a vineyard next to Te Mata Estate. Creamy, smooth-textured Chardonnay with subtle tree fruit and peach fruit flavours interwoven with fresh-baked bread and toasted nut flavours. A fine-grained, moderately concentrated wine supported by deliciously fruity acidity” Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Jun 2019

A flavourful, multidimensional Chardonnay with a core of ripe stonefruit and fragrant citrus, overlaid with aromas of roasted nuts, toasted brioche, subtle creaminess and a hint of smoke. The palate is powerful yet restrained, with fine texture, great length and balanced fresh acidity.

Church Road Grand Reserve wines are produced only in great vintages. The very best low-cropping vineyard blocks are targeted for selective hand harvesting to give wines with the greatest possible flavour, depth and concentration. In the winery these wines are made using small batch, traditional winemaking techniques that emphasise texture, structure and subtle complexity, while still letting the fruit shine through.
