Regular Price $50.00

Hand-picked and fermented with natural vineyard yeasts and aged in 20% new French oak barrels and 38% in a concrete Tulipe for 12 months before settling in a concrete Tulipe on light lees for a further 5 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Slightly hazy, lemon golden hue. Complex aromas of grilled nuts, citrus fruits, florals and a hint of lemon rind. Mouth-watering acidity drives the wine with laser focus, flavours of citrus fruits, toasted nuts and a creamy texture gives the wine body and weight. A classic North Canterbury Chardonnay that is fully ripe and saline.

Metro Wine Awards 2024
“Another top 50 placement for this wine (the 2020 chardonnay made the grade last year) and another great showing for winemaker Huw Kinch...Lemon and lime notes on the nose, with added notes of smoke and flint. Mineral, textural, juicy fruit on the palate, this wine is also lithe, with a great 'bite' - a lovely, fresh acid line.”
Oliver Styles, Metro Wine Awards Head Judge
