Tasting Notes

Colour:As a young wine, this is pale in the glass with pale gold highlights. As the wine ages, the colour will deepen.
Bouquet:The nose is typical of Gisborne Chardonnay in an early year. It is a delightful melange of peach, nectarine and melon.
Palate:The palate is full of fresh fruit character, yet also has richness, weight and length.

Vintage 2017 was lovely in Gisborne, especially the early part of it, when the Chardonnay was harvested. We were able to pick clean fruit with good sugar levels. The juice commenced ferment in tank and then was run off to a mixture of seasoned American and French barrels to complete ferment. The wine then stayed in barrel, on gross lees, for a number of months. This wine is based on fruit from Delwyn and Doug Bell’s vineyard in Back Ormond Road, just outside of Gisborne city. It is all Clone 548 which famously is the main clone planted in the famed Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy. This is supplemented by Clone 15 Chardonnay from Richard McIntyre’s block in Opou.
