COLOUR: A delicate, pale straw green

NOSE: An elegant blend of aromas from Chardonnay fruit, integrated toasty oak and yeast lees along with subtle malolactic fermentation aromas

PALATE: A complex Chardonnay made from the best Mendoza clone grown at elevation in Hawke's Bay.  The wine is exhibiting strong varietal flavours supported by fullness and creaminess derived from extended time on yeast lees in barrel.  Full malolactic fermentation has helped to soften the wine and this, combined with the flavours of the best oak barrels provides a wine of density and depth

VINEYARD REGION:100% Hawke’s Bay

VINTAGE CONDITIONS: The growing season weather conditions were perfect for bringing the Chardonnay fruit to full maturity while still retaining a good level of natural acidity to ensure freshness and flavour. Thanks to the earlier maturity of this block the fruit was able to be picked before the mid-season rains that occurred this year

WINEMAKING: The fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness and transported quickly to the winery.  It was then gently pressed using a Champagne cycle with no press cuts.  Pressing was followed by cold settling to clarify the juice.  The clear juice was fermented in 43% new French Oak Barriques with a specific Chardonnay yeast that enhances complexity.  It then went through a full malolactic fermentation to add further complexity and softness to the palate.  After ferment, the wine was aged on yeast lees with fortnightly stirring to encourage extraction of yeast proteins to aid with palate weight and roundness.
