Description

  • Subtle oak
  • Peach
  • Citrus
  • Creamy texture

Grown on stoney riverbed soils in the Waipara Valley for twelve months this dry wine has typical Waipara Valley peach and citrus characters reflecting the light riverbed shingle that it is grown in. This wine is balanced by subtle oak and creamy texture, ideally suited to richer food and sauce dishes.

Predominantly grown on their Glasnevin vineyard from spur pruned vines, the very low yielding Chardonnay harvest was picked earlier than ever before.

Fermentation was in small oak barrels as well as stainless steel using indigenous yeasts. Once the fermentation finished the wine was left to mature on full yeast lees for four months without any malolactic conversion. While in barrels and tanks the wine is constantly hand stirred keeping the yeast cells in suspension, this is done to add a creamy character to the winethat is often found in good Chardonnays. The resulting wine is medium bodied with balanced acid and fruit tannins. Rich citrus and peach flavours complement a smooth dry finish.

These wines are expressive with stunning fruit concentration and a character that reflects the soils and purity of the environment in which the grapes are grown. Stoney Range wines are classic with a modern twist and immediately enjoyable.

Food Pairing: Creamy vegetarian egg plant with bean pie or a saucy rich chicken or pork dish.
