Description

Ripe lemon, cashew and fig aromas. Palate The texture is refreshing and elegant with subtle toasty and creamy notes from the oak barrel influence.  Fruit flavours of citrus, nectarine and white peach sit alongside a softly balanced acid structure.

Spy Valley Chardonnays have a habit of ageing well, a window of 3-6 years  is suggested to provide a mix of fruit freshness and aging complexity.

Hand picked over seven separate passes before gentle whole cluster pressing.  Free run full solids juice is fermented entirely in barrels with around 75%  being natural fermentation. After 11 months on full lees the barrels are selected  and blended prior to bottling. The result is a complex wine with toasty notes and fine acidity balanced by a generous palate weight.

Spy Valley’s commitment remains to the land and to the people who tend it – they are simply farmers at heart, nurturing soil and vine to cultivate the complexities in our wine. And they’re mindful that it’s their focus on sustainability which will ensure our guardianship of this land for generations to come. They’re considered a little clandestine around Marlborough, deep in the bewitching valley. Perhaps it comes with being named for their proximity to the spy base down the road, but they like a bit of mystery.
