Tasting Notes: 

2022 Estate Chardonnay

Elegantly composed and expressed, the wine shows apricot, rockmelon, lemon peel and nougat notes on the nose, followed by a beautifully flowing palate that's ripe and supple. Well balanced by juicy acidity, finishing lingering and creamy. At its best: now to 2027. Rated 93/100. 5 stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit. 

2022 Estate Chardonnay, Martinborough: The fruit was carefully harvested from two vineyards, one in the Dry River area of Martinborough and the other on the Martinborough terraces towards Te Muna valley on the 13th, then the 26th of March. It was pressed to a stainless steel tank, and after 12 hrs settling racked directly to a combination of French oak 500L 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 in late February 2023.

The wine was bottled in March 2023.
