2016 ORGANIC CHARDONNAY

Appearance:
Pale straw with bright clarity.

Bouquet:
A beautiful bouquet of ripe white peaches with notes of grapefruit together with toasty, nutty well integrated oak.

Palate:
Full bodied fruit driven wine with a rich creamy mouthfeel.

Technical Analysis:

Location – 45 Degrees South
Low cropping grapes for this wine were hand harvested from our Te Wairere vineyard in Lowburn, Central Otago.

Climate:
A season of hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of very ripe clean fruit still holding good acidity.

Soils:
Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.

Vine Age:
5 year old vines

Trellis Style:
VSP with cane pruned vines.

Winemakers Comments: Grapes were whole bunch pressed, and fermented in French oak barrels (15% new oak) with wild yeasts. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in the following spring.

Bottled : July 2017
Alcohol : 13 %
