Description

  • French oak
  • Juicy nectarine
  • Honeydew melon
  • Fresh & balanced

"Elegant and attractively expressed, the bouquet shows apricot, fig, lemon zest and subtle roasted nut aromas, leading to a beautifully rounded palate offering smooth mouthfeel and creamy texture. Well proportioned and comfortingly tasty. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2020

"Bright, pale straw-yellow with some depth and a green hue, lighter on edge. The nose is soft with an elegant scent of stonefruit citrus intermix a light note of vanilla cream and a hint of almond. Medium-full bodied, more expressive on the palate, peaches and nectarines along with a little grapefruit interweave almond biscuit, vanilla cream. An elegant, fine-textured phenolic line added to the mouthfeel, linger with nutty nuances to a sustained, satisfying finish. Match with baked chicken pie and quiche lorraine over the next 3 years" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Jan 2021

A beautiful Chardonnay that has a classic golden shimmer and aromas of juicy nectarine and honeydew melon. Rich and luscious in flavour with a subtle oak influence, each sip is fresh and delicately balanced.

Grapes were grown in the Southern Valleys, a premium Chardonnay subregion. After pressing juice was sent to barrel and tank for fermentation, with selected yeast strains, 35% of the blend was fermented in aged French oak. A portion of the ferment completed malolactic fermentation, to add texture and subtle creaminess.

The 2019 growing season started well in Marlborough with good soil moisture and warm, even springtime temperatures. Intermittent rainfall resulted in cooler soil temperatures, before extended hot and dry weather over Summer resulted in low disease pressure and outstanding fruit quality.

They capture the best bits of summer in every glass of Summerhouse, so you can enjoy life’s simple pleasures all year round.
