"Even straw-yellow colour with pale, lemon-gold hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is moderately deep with firm, well-packed aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with a layer of flinty lees and fresh reductive minerals that lend complexity. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a concentrated heart of stonefruit and citrus fruit with sweetness and richness, unfolding a gentle layer of nutty notes and gunflinty notes. The palate is balanced and harmonious, with the core providing good body and presence. The wine flows along a fresh line, with fine-textures, leading to a lingering finish. This is a moderately sweet, rich and concentrated Chardonnay with a core of stonefruit, nuts and complex flinty elements on a harmonious palate with good body and length. Match with roasted poultry, pork and veal over the next 3+ years. Marlborough fruit, 40% from Omaka and 30% each from Brancott and Rapaura, fermented in tank with 25% in barrel to 13.5% alc., the barrel component aged in wood for 9 months undergoing batonnage with 25% of the wine undergoing MLF" Raymond Chan, Aug 2018

"A beautifully styled Chardonnay; the lifted bouquet shows white flesh stone fruit, rockmelon, lemon peel and toasted almond characters with nuances of vanilla and spice. The palate delivers bright fruit flavours together with smooth mouthfeel and well pitched acidity, leading to a persistent creamy finish. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2018

The bouquet presents fresh peach and honeysuckle aromas with touch of vanilla and cinnamon. This wine is full of lucsious stone fruit and fresh citrus flavours with a lovely finish.

A stunning place to live and a fantastic place to make delicious wines. The climate is not too hot, not too cold and surrounded by beautiful rivers, mountains and the pristine South Pacific Ocean. All of which serves as inspiration to make pure, fresh wines for you to enjoy.

Life can be busy and it's important that we take a few moments to relax. Summerhouse wines are made for those moments, to be enjoyed at the end of the day or on the weekend. Share it with family and friends, or not!

Food Pairing: Try with poached salmon and caper butter sauce or a hearty chicken and leek pie.
