Tasting notes and food pairing ideas:
Sourced from a single Hawke’s Bay vineyard, this is an elegant style of Chardonnay showing ripe peach and melon aromas, with a nutty creaminess, complemented by subtle, spicy oak on the finish. Try this wine with creamy pasta and white meat dishes, or with fresh seafood.
Wonderful to drink now, or cellar until 2016. This chardonnay is a mix of clones Mendoza and Fifteen, from the Dartmoor district in Hawkes Bay. Free draining stony gravels are the pre-dominant soil structure in this area. The crop was kept low and well exposed to ensure even ripening and optimal flavour development.This Chardonnay was cool fermented with both aromatic yeasts and Burgundy style yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation was completed, the wine was left for an extended period on yeast lees to promote textural qualities and mouthfeel. The wine exhibits stonefruit and ripe citrus flavours with a rich, mealy texture. A small portion was fermented in barrels using native yeasts to increase complexity.
