WINEMAKING NOTES

The growing conditions in Marlborough, mean that it is well-suited for the production of world class Chardonnay. The relatively cool climate which results in a long, even growing season which is great for flavour development. This means that Te Whare Ra can make a style of Chardonnay which balances concentration and complexity, whilst retaining the finesse that a higher natural acidity brings - which is unashamedly the style Te Whare Ra
 like to drink! 

The parcels for this 2016 release were all fermented in large format French oak demi-muids (35% new). All parcels spent a long time on full lees to provide added texture and complexity. All parcels underwent malo-lactic fermentation and spent 10 months on full lees before final blending.

TASTING NOTES

Lifted aromas of grapefruit, toasted almond, and white nectarine are complemented by smoky, savoury notes and hints of spice. These aromas follow on to complex, weighty, fleshy palate with real depth of flavour including grapefruit, fresh fig and white stone-fruit as well as savoury mineral notes. Well integrated toasty oak and a lingering, spicy persistence complete this wine.

2016 was an exceptional vintage in Marlborough, characterised by a warmer than average summer, and has resulted in very balanced wines with lovely purity and ripe acidity. This 2016 Chardonnay is drinking well now but we are consciously making a style that will benefit from some bottle age, so it will also develop with careful cellaring for 5-7 years.
