Why we love it
An elegant Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay – concentrated in the mouth, yet fresh and vibrant, with subtle oak adding savoury complexity.

Tasting notes
Lemon yellow in colour. On the nose, aromas of citrus fruit, white nectarines and citrus blossom. On the palate, flavours of toasted nuts and spices, a slight note of flint and hints of elegant, well-integrated oak. There is a delicacy to this wine but also a richness and beautifully linear acidity.

Food pairing
Excellent with chicken, pork, fish or meaty shellfish such as lobster.

Additional information
The hand-harvested fruit for this wine was gently pressed before being fermented with indigenous yeasts in 500-litre French-oak puncheons (60% new oak). Malolactic fermentation was encouraged to soften acidity and give further richness. The wine then spent 12 months in barrel, followed by a further seven months in tank on lees before being bottled with no fining.
