WINEMAKING NOTES

This barrel-fermented wine is sourced from a number of premium blocks in Gisborne. Predominantly from Ormond Estate vineyards in Gisborne and Patutahi. The soils of Ormond are fertile and free draining compared with Patutahi which have denser semi fertile soils. Ormond is warmer and wetter, whilst Patutahi is dryer and cooler. Generally Ormond will ripen before Patutahi. Ormond contributes honied stone fruit and a broader more textural palate. Patutahi is aromatic and elegant with crisp acidity and a mineral palate. The grapes and resulting wines differ but complement being the sum of the parts. Gisborne was finally blessed with an extraordinary fantastic vintage, the best since 1998, possibly better. The lovely dry warm weather produced fruit in absolutely perfect balance and in pristine condition. This has produced a wine with great varietal expression,concentration, and balance.

This wine has been fermented predominantly in French oak, 15% being new wood and the balance a combination of 1 to 3 year old. A portion of the wine underwent wild fermentation allowing a natural expression of the fruit with 50% undergoing malolactic fermentation . Weekly lees-stirring has added a creamy texture and savoury complexity. This has produced an outstanding example of Chardonnay from the Gisborne region.

TASTING NOTES

Generous stone fruit and honey comb with hints of toasty oak. This wine has a subtle creamy texture and an underlying citrus freshness. The integrated savoury oak combines to create a long and elegant finish. This is a beautifully balanced complex Chardonnay which lingers tantalisingly on the palate.
