Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The individual vineyard parcels were harvested separately in late March and early April and fermented in both tank and French oak barriques (80%) with wild yeasts. The finished wines were left on their lees until blending in December 2016. A percentage of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation to naturally soften the acidity.

This is a full bodied yet elegant style of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay exhibiting aromas of peach and melon intermingled with hints of butter, grapefruit, nuts and French oak spice."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Top vintages can offer irresistible value. The 2015 vintage was fully fermented and matured in French oak barriques (15 per cent new), and half the blend went through a softening malolactic fermentation. A classic regional style, it is a generous, sweet-fruited wine, mouthfilling, with youthful grapefruit and peach flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak, fresh acidity and a slightly mealy, finely textured finish. It's one of the best-value Chardonnays on the market."
