Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Church Road Grand Reserve Chardonnay has long been respected as one of New Zealand’s finest examples of this variety and continues to be recognised as such with many major accolades for each release.

Hand harvested and hand sorted off our lowest cropping blocks, the fruit is then carefully loaded to the press and whole bunch pressed directly to barrel for wild fermentation without any juice clarification or settling. Wild malolactic fermentation also occurs and this helps to balance acidity naturally and adds further textural and aromatic interest. Only three year air dried, fine grain French oak was used of which 30% was new, 22% second fill, 22% third fill and the balance in older oak. The wine was matured on full yeast lees in barrel for approximately 11 months with monthly battonage (yeast lees stirring).

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"
