Description

  • Light oak
  • Ripe apricot
  • Fruit-driven
  • Well balanced

Peach and ripe apricot, with light oak. A fruit-forward balanced style with a touch of creaminess.

Hawkes Bay has a long reputation with Chardonnay, and the winemakers at Allan Scott have teamed up with a grape grower to produce a ripe fruit-forward style.

The fruit is harvested then transported to Marlborough. The wine has a long cool fermentation to retain fruit freshness and then is immediately inoculated for Malolactic fermentation. After some time on lees and with minimal lees stirring, about 20% is added to oak for maturation. Designed as an easy-drinking early release Chardonnay with minimal oak.

Food Pairing: One we would share with anything from grilled crispy skin salmon, wood-roasted rotisserie chicken or even a slow-cooked BBQ rolled pork roast or chilled on its own.
