Description

  • Spicy oak
  • Peach & nectarine
  • Ripe tropical fruit
  • Rich & creamy

Intense stonefruit aromas of peach and nectarine with subtle smoky notes. Creamy fruit sweetness provides a suppler texture leading into a generously flavoured finish with a touch of spicy oak. Rich, creamy and concentrated for a wine of this price. If tasted blind, you could be forgiven for thinking is was closer to $20. The flavours mirror the aromatics with added complexities of oaky spice and ripe tropical. Enjoy often... it's very drinkable.

Fruit for this Chardonnay was selected from several Hawkes Bay sub-regions providing a broad spectrum of flavour from punchy tropical to aromatic stone fruit and elegant citrus.

Fermentation was completed over two weeks at around 16°C then the wine was matured on yeast lees with regular stirring to increase complexity and mouthfeel. A light skim milk fining prepared the blend for filtration and bottling.

Mount Ridge's wines are grown in soil types and microclimates ideally suited to viticulture. Their winemaking and bottling facilities are state-of-the-art, which combined with their highly skilled winemakers and staff makes for exceptional quality from one vintage to the next.
