Majority of the Chardonnay grapes came from our Te Awanga vineyard with 17% from our Bridge Pa Triangle vineyard. It was barrel fermented and aged
in one-third new French oak for full 12 months with some lees stirring.
This wine displays lovely grilled stone fruits, pineapple and citrus
backbones with subtle nutty, creamy aromas. It is beautiful to drink now but will develop well with proper cellaring for up to a decade.
