2021 Alana Estate Chardonnay
Score (Sam Kim- Wine Orbit): 91/100, 4.5/5 Stars

Enjoy this 12 bottle case! Containing grapes from both Martinborough and Gladstone (hence Wairarapa on the front of the bottle), this lovely recent release of our Estate Chardonnay is wonderfully lightly oaked wine, best enjoyed with family and friends. 

Tasting Notes: 
It's attractively fruited and beautifully fragrant on the nose showing golden peach, fig and vanillin oak characters. The palate delivers excellent weight and fruit intensity, well complemented by smooth mouthfeel and creamy texture. Flavoursome and comfortingly appealing.

Winemaking Notes:
The fruit was carefully hand harvested from two vineyards, one in the Dry River area of Martinborough and the other in the Gladstone sub region of Wairarapa. It was whole bunch pressed directly to a combination of French oak 500 and 600L puncheons, and 225L barriques, where it underwent  a spontaneous fermentation. Throughout its 11 months of barrel aging, the lees were stirred every three weeks, and spontaneous malolactic fermentation took place in a portion of the barrels in the spring.
In February the barrels were emptied and blended under a nitrogen gas cover, before protein stabilisation and filtration.
The wine was bottled in March 2021.
