2015 Chardonnay

2015 Chardonnay

Regular price $240

A blend of three clones (95, 1066, 809) planted on our Matau vineyard, and a tiny yield of around 1kg per vine in 2015 leaving us with just a single barrel, and only 25 cases produced in total. Citrus and mineral flavours predominate in 2015, with mouthwatering acidity.

Made in a traditional style utilising barrel fermentation with partial solids, full malolactic fermentation, regular lees stirring and 12 months maturation in older French oak.

A very versatile food wine due to the relatively subtle oak regime and the balance between primary fruit and secondary characters; the firm acid structure will ensure it continues to develop and improve in bottle for a fair while yet - will be great with shellfish in a year or two.
