Description

Kelly Washington's "Best Marlborough Chardonnay" and award winning Sauvignon Blanc boast endless elegance and vibrancy presented with excellent poise. Showcasing exceptional fruit flavours and flare, it only made sense to combine these white wines into an exclusive collectors pack.

At Kelly Washington they seek unique and diverse parcels of high quality fruit, which they translate into their elegant and honest wines. Working with such exceptional fruit, their aim is to is to showcase and explore sub regionality of New Zealand's wine growing regions, but moreover making wines of provenance. In many cases, these special sites are farmed organically and bio-dynamically. Therefore it is important for winemakers to take these philosophies into the winery and beyond.

Collectors pack includes:

1 x Kelly Washington Rapaura Marlborough Chardonnay 2019

Awarded 94/100 Points & 4 STars: Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Mar 2021

"Creamy, silken chardonnay with white peach, melon, root ginger and subtle spicy oak flavours. Seamless wine with integrated flavours and a lingering finish. A seductive chardonnay that is easy to appreciate now" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Mar 2021

A slight change in style to incorporate the use of no new oak, mainly due to volume restrictions ( but also some genuine curiosity! ) has aided in creating a style that is focused even more so on the impact of using a high proportion of lees in small vessels. Showing complex savoury aromas that follow though onto the palate, also notes of melon and almonds. The palate is defined and elegant, yes concentrated and finishes with a long, delicious, citrus acidity.

Alc: 12.5%

1 x Kelly Washington Southern Valleys Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Grown and made in a way that is atypical of Sauvignon Blanc from the region, the Kelly Washington Sauvignon Blanc subsequently has quite a unique expression. The hallmark of the wine is texture, and the palate is quite layered, yet vibrant and defined, with a very low pH that is typical of the terroir. There is quite an assertive beautiful elderflower note that is felt on both the nose and palate. Overall, a very grown up and delicious Sauvignon Blanc!

A portion fermented in a small stainless steel tank ( 70%) and the balance ( 30%) fermented in, largely, old neutral barrels. One new French oak barrel was also filled – medium toast, Allier forest (represented 3 % of the total blend). 10 months on full lees, in tank and barrel. The barrels were stirred monthly.

Alc: 12.65%
