Description

Established in 1851, Mission Estate is NZ's oldest winery. The fruit for this Reserve Barrique fermented Chardonnay is hand-picked from low yielding vines well over 20-years old. Gentle pressing then straight to expensive French Barrels for fermentation with a portion of indigenous yeasts, 6 months lees-aging further enhances the complexity. No malolactic fermentation provides extra freshness and fruit weight to this already powerfully flavoured wine.

Smells

Ripe peach/nectarine with toasty oak, roasted nuts and subtle shortcake notes.

Tastes

Delicious combination of fresh, perfectly ripe stone fruits and toasty/spicy oak. The fresh fruit is nicely contrasted by gentle acid and a creamy textural thread. It will develop a more buttery core in the coming months and drink nicely through 2023 and beyond. Perfect with white meats and vegetarian dishes.
