Black Estate have been gaining much attention over the last few years and all of it is well deserved. They are certainly one of the emerging stars in Waipara. The single vineyard wine from the home block at Black Estate displays the hallmark characters of Black Estate Chardonnay - texture, broad suppleness and mineral length.
The Home vineyard is the one in front of the restaurant. All Mendoza clone, planted by Russell Black in 1994. Nicholas makes quite a different style to Russell did, being quite a bit more elegant (no more 15% alc!). Now fully bio-dynamically farmed, a lot of effort has gone into the vineyard to encourage healthy, hardy vines that have roots that penetrate well down into the calcareous vein that runs through the clays soils. 100% naturally fermented in 500l and 600l barrels; 100% malo-lactic and bottled unfined and unfiltered – which means a natural deposit forms and the wine should be gently decanted before serving. This is a rich, concentrated Chardonnay with plenty of palate weight and density.
