Description

This generous Chardonnay is a favourite among the Giesen team and now a favourite of our Fine Wine Delivery team. Crafted with selected parcels of hand-picked fruit from the Wairau and Southern Valleys, picked early to ensure the beautiful natural tartness Marlborough is renowned for is showcased. Sites are chosen for their heavier soils giving depth, concentration, and complexity to this wine as well as a wonderful minerality. The astutely managed oak fermentation and maturation program was of the highest quality. Predominately French oak hogsheads and puncheons plus 1000L German oak barrels for 10 months… the oak age was 12% new, 18% one year old with the balance older. Unchartered is a perfect marriage of the best of handpicked fruit and fine oak… totally gratifying throughout the palate. Coming out of its shell now… it will drink superbly through 2026.

Smells

Very attractive aromas of white peach, Meyer lemon, toasted hazelnut, and flint.

Tastes

Enjoy the rich, concentrated palate. An amalgam of ripe peach, Meyer lemon and pink grapefruit with an infusion of toasted hazelnut and subtle vanilla spice unfold throughout. The grapefruit adding a delicious tart contrast to the palate creaminess as it finishes intently with a mineral freshness. Delicious on its own, it will partner fatty roast chicken and pork dishes perfectly.
