Wine tasting notes
The fruit for this wine is sourced from vineyard sites around the Hawkes Bay. Vineyards in the north at Bay View provide the finished wine with ripe tropical fruit flavours while sites on the terraces above the Tutaekuri River at Puketapu add a more flinty, grapefruit note. These sites also provide a natural acidity to the blended wine. Shoot thinning, leaf plucking and bunch thinning are all practiced in these vineyards in the pursuit of quality.
The individual vineyard parcels are kept separate and fermented in a mix of oak barriques and stainless tanks. Cultured and indigenous yeasts are utilised for fermentation and the finished wines left on lees until blending and bottling. A percentage of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation to naturally soften the acidity.
This is a full bodied yet elegant style of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay exhibiting aromas of peach and melon intermingled with hints of butter, grapefruit and French oak spice.
