  • Creamy

"A very approachable and delightful chardonnay; the elegantly fragrant bouquet shows mandarin, nectarine, vanilla and hazelnut characters, followed by a succulent palate that is fruit expressive and smooth. The wine offers bright fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, finishing persistent and attractively creamy" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2017

A full bodied, fruit driven Chardonnay. This fresh and focused wine delivers flavours of rockmelon, white peach, and nectarine with a hint of spice and a long steely finish. Grapes for this wine were selected from vineyards across the Marlborough Valley.  A portion of the wine was fermented in oak and underwent malolactic fermentation. This has helped produce a soft, round palate and an expansive finish. This Chardonnay is perfect for drinking now and will continue to develop over the next few years.

Food Pairing: Delicious with roast chicken or homemade apple pie and cream.
