Artisanal Hawkes Bay Chenin Blanc

This single vineyard Chenin Blanc was aged on its lees with regular stirring for complexity and richness. Dry in style with a rich palate of baked apple, citrus and honey.


Tasting Notes

This wine reveals classic Chenin Blanc notes of baked apple, citrus and honey. It is dry in style with a full and rich palate, enhanced by long term ageing on yeast lees. It is delicious as a young wine but will gain complexity with time in the bottle.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs wonderfully with sweet and sour elements found in South East Asian cuisine.

Vineyards and Winemaking

The fruit was picked, pressed lightly, settled overnight and run to a mix of large format oak barrels and small tanks for fermentation with wild yeast. The tank
fermented portion was stopped with a small amount of residual sugar to
provide richness to the final blend. The wine was aged on its lees with regular stirring.

Soils And Viticulture

This is a single vineyard wine from the Two Terraces Vineyard situated inland at Mangatahi. The Chenin Blanc plantings are located on the lower of the two gravel river terraces formed by the Ngaruroro River.
