The 2022 growing season started with some wet weather that carried on until late spring. Excellent fruit set early December resulted in crop levels bigger than average. In what will ultimately go down as a ‘challenging’ vintage, unwavering vineyard preparation delivered excellent fruit condition and flavour concentration. A variety of fermentation techniques were used with a mixture of juice going straight into French oak barrels for 7 months. Other portions were tank fermented and some were cold settled and partially tank fermented and then sent to barrels mid-ferment. The wine underwent full malolactic fermentation to add further complexity. This Marlborough Chardonnay is rich, creamy, full bodied with citrus flavours. An elegant wine without reliance on new oak, which shows a hint of how great New Zealand Chardonnays can be.
Enjoy on it's own or with rich seafood or poultry dishes.
At its best now through to 2027

Premium - Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier 2023
By Cameron Douglas MS
Ripe, fleshy and fruity core with flavours of fresh white peach and apple, a layer of grapefruit flesh then spices of vanilla and new-ish French barrel. Medium+ weighted and a soft creamy touch, contrasting acid line and core fruit flavours that repeat. A balanced and well made wine ready to drink from 2023 through 2027+.
