Description

  • Subtle oak
  • Cedar & vanilla
  • Nectarine
  • Creamy mouthfeel

"Ripe, complex and fragrant, the engaging bouquet shows nectarine, rockmelon, cedar, vanilla and subtle spice notes. The palate is concentrated and beautifully weighted, delivering fleshy mouthfeel and creamy texture, brilliantly supported by bright acidity, finishing long and delectable" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2018

Fresh nectarine, grapefruit and white floral aromas. Creamy mouthfeel, grapefruit with a touch of oak influence adding texture and length, all leading into a sweet fruit finish.

The 2015 season started drier than usual with typically good temperatures from December through to February. Around 16th to 18th March the edge of a tropical cyclone made it’s presence felt and about 50mm of rain fell in Hawke’s Bay. Immediately after the rain, some very cool southerly winds dried the vineyards out perfectly. The next three weeks saw almost no rain and ripening continued well. Cool dry weather followed right up until the end of harvest on the 24th April. Harvest began with Chardonnay around mid-March and the fruit benefited greatly from another two weeks on the vine.

Harvested at optimum condition fermented using selected strains of yeast. Portions of this wine were aged on oak for 8 months. This wine went through partial MLF fermentation on yeast lees. Fined using milk products.

Outstanding value for money. Rare to get a chardy of that vintage for that price. What will it cost if it comes off special?
