Tasting notes

The coastal Te Awanga vineyard has proven to be a special site for Chardonnay.
Whole bunch pressed and fermented with indigenous yeast, minimal malolactic fermentation. Aged in 25% new French oak for 12 months with some less stirring.
This wine displays yellow stonefruit and citrus characters with a toasty oak palate. It is finely concentrated and has subtle mineral elements. 
Cellar to 2026.
