Description

A miniscule 150 dozen production Chardonnay... every process is hands on and dedicated to crafting a wine of purity and poise. Like a tiny bake using the most natural and purest flour... the result is compelling! ‘Te Kano’ (Maori for seed) celebrates the lone surviving Kowhai tree affectionately known as ‘Old Man Kowhai’ on the Northburn slopes above Lake Dunstan — on land presiding over the magnificent Lake Dunstan that Te Kano Estate calls home. Committed to rejuvenating the land and a sustainable future through re-planting and excellent stewardship. Te Kano is for those who appreciate the rarest combination of layered elegance and sublime natural quality. Estate grown, Bannockburn fruit, handpicked, barrel fermented, lees stirred over 9 months – everything in perfect synchronisation in a textural, complex and elegant Chardonnay which should age gracefully through 2028.

Smells

A seductive and poised medley of golden peach skins, corn husks, butter and cream with hints of fennel and rosemary.

Tastes

A rich, creamy palate of stonefruit, corn and hazelnut butter unfold in a salivating crystalline acid vein that brings perfect poise to its richness. Lovely and long on the palate it offers immediate pleasure but will grow in stature through 2025. Pour yourself a glass or two in company that would appreciate its class... and enjoy with your favourite pasta dishes or pan-fried snapper.
