The Circuit range was developed by Black Estate to offer a lower price point and to take advantage of fruit from other sources. This Chardonnay is from vineyards on the river terraces on the Glasnevin gravels. Naturally fermented in a mix of stainless steel, older and new oak with 100% malo-lactic. This has light grapefruit, golden fruits, creamy, nougat, hints of spice.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"A spring straw, light green hue. Aromas of grapefruit, apricot, lemon zest, hazelnut and subtle struck match. The pallet has a fine river stone minerality that carries flavours of blood orange, brioche, nectarine and sandalwood. A fresh, complex, and invigorating example of North Canterbury Chardonnay from Glasnevin gravel soils. Drink now to 2022."
93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Quite an impact from ripe stone fruit and oak with a significant undercurrant of minerality; fresh oak with toasty spicy vanilla attributes - all quite loud and attention seeking. On the palate - great impact from the fruit and oak; medium+ acidity drawing attention to the minerality, a dry wine with a ripe core of fruit - again stonefruit with a grapefruit peel note, fine oak tannins; plenty of texture and mouth feel; lengthy finish. Very nice wine!"
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Beautifully expressed, the inviting bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, mango, lemon pith and oatmeal characters with a hint of vanilla complexity. The palate is succulent and rounded, and displays excellent mid palate weight and texture, wonderfully framed by bright acidity. Delightfully attractive and elegantly complex. At its best: now to 2019."
