Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"A small parcel of chardonnay grapes growing from 34 year old organic vines growing in Netherwood’s south facing .9ha hillside of sandstone.

Smells like orange blossom, nectarine and hazelnut. A dense mid-pallet with fresh invigorating minerality from sandstone. Rich but salivating and persistent with considerable length of flavour. Please decant. Un-fined and unfiltered. Drink now to 2028."

This Chardonnay is grown at the Netherwood Vineyard which lies in the foothills of the Teviotdale ranges in Omihi, North Canterbury. The Chardonnay vineyard is 0.8 Hectares and was planted in 1986 on a south facing hillside. The soils are classified as Waipara Greensand which is a green grey richly glauconitic sandstone. The vines are mass selection and thought to be cuttings of Mendoza Chardonnay and planted at a vine density of 5000 vines per hectare. The Netherwood Vineyard gained full organic certification in March 2017 and is farmed using Biodynamic principles.

25% foot crushed with a two hour skin soak and then slow whole bunch pressing. No settling. Fermentation with yeast propagated from a Netherwood Vineyard starter, in a 500L tight grained two year old French cask with maturation on lees. Full spring Malolactic fermentation."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"This wine has a natural slightly unfiltered appearance as apart of the winemaking philosophy. The aromas and flavours are both sound and delicious with fleshy yellow stone fruit and sweet grapefruit, apple and lemon skin. On the palate – chalky texture with an abundance of natural acidity and weight then flavours that reflect the nose. Even and balanced use of oak layering in a baking spices and mild blond tobacco flavours as well as weight and structure. Lengthy finish and well made. Drink now and through 2023."

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
