Description

  • Nutty oak
  • Ripe stone fruit
  • Hazelnuts
  • Fine acidity

"This is stylish and gorgeously complex on the nose showing golden peach, fig, nougat, roasted cashew and vanilla characters. The palate delivers excellent weight and roundness, wonderfully enhanced by creamy mouthfeel and beautifully pitched acidity, finishing long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2020

Rich aromas of ripe stone fruits and hazelnuts. The palate is textured and full with pleasing layers of complexity. Fine acidity adds length and balance.

The Lodge Chardonnay is grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle and Mangatahi sub-regions of Hawke’s Bay. The warm, even growing conditions of Bridge Pa contrast with cooler conditions at Mangatahi. These different growing conditions produce very different fruit, allowing us to create a wine with layers of flavour, complexity and interest.

Fruit for this reserve wine is hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The cloudy juice was then fermented in French oak barriques, with a mix of indigenous and inoculated yeasts. Following the primary and full malolactic fermentations, the wine is left to mature on gross lees in barrel for approximately ten months, prior to bottling.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with a creamy pasta, seafood chowder or with smoked salmon.
