Pure expression of wonderfully ripe Gisborne Chardonnay showing intense stone fruit and tropical fruit characters on both the nose and palate.
Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy
Flavour ripe Chardonnay grapes were crushed and destemmed to the press, the juice was then cooled in tank for gentle clarification. the juice was racked to tank for cool fermentation following by partial malolactic fermentation. Richness and complexity has been achieved without the use of oak. This wine was gently fined and filtered prior to bottling.
