SILVER WING WAIPARA CHARDONNAY 2014 is available to buy in increments of 1
A relatively new Waipara label from winemaker Andrew Fox and one that is showing great promise. Seen in a number of Christchurch's top restaurants and bars, Silver Wing Chardonnay is now available at Vino Fino. The fruit is all hand picked and sees wild barrel fermentation and battonage on lees for one year giving great texture and interest. We're impressed.
4 Stars & 17.5-/20 Raymond Chan, November 2015 (2014 Vintage)
"A single vineyard wine, hand-picked fruit from 20 y.o. vines, 40% destemmed and given 4 hours skin contact, the remainder WBP, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 15% new French oak, the wine undergoing batonnage and approx. 90% MLF. Bright, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour, This has an elegantly concentrated nose of white and yellow stonefruits melded with subtle flinty lees and reductive complexities, along with nutty detail and sweet, lifted oak and smoky notes. A little waxiness emerges in the glass. Medium-bodied, tightly bound and elegantly presented flavours of white stonefruits, nuts and waxy elements feature on the palate. This has a good core with a smooth-flowing, energetic line. The textures are fine and the mouthfeel lively from the bright acidity. The nutty and flinty flavours carry through to a long, lingering, concentrated finish. This is an elegant, tightly bound Chardonnay with nutty and waxy notes, fine textures and liveliness. Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 3-4 years."
