Chardonnay 2019


The wine is made from 100% fruit grown at our vineyard in Kumeu.  Notes of almond meal, pear and ripe lemon great the nose.  the palate has a fine mineral line, it is well structured , yet has an elegant restraint.  Elements of grapefruit, nutmeg and lemon flesh add to a savoury finish.

Drinking well now, but ageworthy too, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown in West Auckland. Light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and smooth, with strong peach, pear and spice flavours, gently seasoned with oak, savoury notes adding complexity, fresh acidity, and very good vigour, harmony and personality. Fine value.
