Description

Crafted by Gordon Russell from fruit sourced from alluvial terraces above the Nagaruroro River at Maraekakaho and the Tutaekuri River at Puketapu, supplemented by fuller, stone fruited Bay View fruit grown near the winery at Esk Valley. This wine sees plenty of French oak and undergoes wild fermentation for added complexity and character. A wine with a track record of excellence and one that always over delivers.

Smells

A hint of fresh bread and toasted nuts, with sea breeze, vanilla, peach and baking spices.

Tastes

Lovely focused grapefruit notes provide a refreshing kick, before a creamy texture takes over, revealing tastes of peach, banana, whipped cream and hazelnut. It finishes with weight and energy underpinned by a fresh mineral crescendo that invites you back for more. Very classy and generously flavoured Chardonnay that's unbelievable buying at our price. It will compliment a wide variety of pasta and poultry dishes and drink nicely between now and 2021.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
