(x) 2020 North Canterbury Pastures Chardonnay
Hand-picked and fermented with natural vineyard yeasts and aged in 20% new French oak barrels for 12 months before settling in stainless steel on light less for a further 4 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Slightly hazy, unfiltered appearance with a golden lemon hue. Complex mineral nose with hazelnut, grilled almond notes supported by ripe stone fruits, citrus fruits and an underlying salinity.
~Metro Top 50 Wines 2023 ~ “Pretty, nutty, mealy with citrus fruit notes, there’s texture, concentration and focus on the palate. Bright and deep, like a cold, dark pool on a tropical island.” - Metro Top 50 Wines 2023 judging panel
