Winemakers Tasting Notes Our Pioneer Series Chardonnay is made from fruit harvested from the Home Block and is a delicious marriage of stone fruits, refreshing citrus and tropical pineapple flavors. We blend a small portion of oak fermented Chardonnay with our main production of ‘unoaked’ wine to produce a bright, fresh style of Chardonnay balanced by the perfect touch of richness. Enjoy this wine on its own or match it with classic Kiwi summer fare; green salads, steamed mussels, crayfish, squid rings and  scallops.

Winemaking Notes We destemmed, crushed and loaded very ripe Chardonnay grapes directly into the press. Following some skin contact, we pressed the skins and transferred the juice into a combination of stainless steel tanks and used oak barrels for fermentation and lees exposure. Approximately 5% of the wine was barrel fermented and briefly aged in older oak barrels to add a touch of creaminess to the finished wine.
