Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 Chardonnay is estate grown on the Huia Home Block Vineyard. This vineyard was planted in 1995 on a range of soil types from sandy to very stony alluvial silts. The vines are low in vigour. We spur prune to even out the growth and ripening behaviour.

A sunny and warm growing season ripened the grapes and these were hand-picked on the 29th March at 23 Brix. Once destemmed, crushed and lightly settled they are racked off the lees for fermentation. A long wild yeast fermentation along with malolactic fermentation in French Oak have contributed to create a sophisticated, elegant and finely structured Chardonnay. This wine is certified Organic, along with being vegetarian and vegan friendly.

On the nose ripe peach and pear combine with lifted vanilla pod. The palate has mixed crisp rich fruit with a silky creamy texture. There are layers of ripe fruit and well integrated vanilla French oak flavours. It has excellent length and structure."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 vintage, certified organic, is full-bodied and savoury, with generous, citrusy, peachy flavours, nutty, biscuity notes adding complexity, and a dry, rich finish. Drink now or cellar."


94/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Briny, nutty, lime and quiet Chardonnay flavour. It’s soft, textured and interesting, with a drinkability and effortless flow. "
