COLOUR: A delicate, pale straw green.
NOSE: An attractive, high level of
minerality resulting from extended time
on yeast lees along with subtle malolactic
fermentation aromas.
PALATE: A complex Chardonnay that
combines varietal flavours augmented
by the impact of fermention aromas
contributed by natural yeast. The wine is
supported by a fullness and creaminess
derived from extended time on yeast lees in
barrel and a small amount of residual sugar
to balance a refreshing acidity.
REGION: 100% Waipara, North Canterbury.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS: The weather
conditions were variable with some rain
pressure late in the season. However the
warm summer allowed the Chardonnay fruit
to attain full maturity while still retaining
a good level of natural acidity to ensure
freshness and flavour. Climatically there
were a few challenges but nonetheless
harvest decisions were able to be made on
flavour ripeness.
WINEMAKING:The fruit was harvested
at optimum ripeness from the nearby
vineyard. It was then gently whole-berry
pressed before transfer to barrels for
fermentation. Fermentation was carried out
by the natural yeast from the grapes which
has added complexity and some minerality
to the palate. The wine then went through
a natural malolactic fermentation in the
Spring.
GRAPE VARIETY:100% Chardonnay.
MATURATION:100% barrel fermentation
and maturation for eleven months.
