Description

Ranking amongst NZ's finest Chardonnay... the 2018 vintage of Craighall is mesmerising... so suggests its quadruple 96/100 ratings. With vines over 30-years of age planted in the heart of the gravelly soils of the Martinborough Terrace, the elegance, finesse and power of this prestigious Chardonnay is an experience once tried... never forgotten. Always a tiny no expense spared production... it’s always allocated to fine wine retail and NZ’s Best Restaurants. This famous vineyard is being replanted for future generations of Craighall... so 2018 is the final Craighall you’ll see for close to a decade. It’s so fitting that the final vintage from the old vines has yielded a Chardonnay so special it has garnered 4 x 96/100 ratings. FWD have secured the final stocks... which amounts to a mere handful of cases that we’re bringing to the attention of select premium Chardonnay customers. It is impressive in its youth... but under screwcap a Chardonnay of this calibre will drink superbly for 10-15 years if well stored.
