Food Pairing

Creamy shell fish or white meat dishes make a great pair with this rich chardonnay.

Vineyards and Winemaking

The individual vineyard parcels were harvested separately in early March and fermented using wild yeast in French oak barriques. Fifty per cent of the wine was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation which softened the wine and added further complexity. The wine was left on its lees undergoing regular stirring before being blended and bottled.

Soils And Viticulture

A blend of two contrasting vineyard sites. Vines in Bay View growing in ex marine soils provide the finished wine with richness and a white peach fruit expression while a block of vines planted inland on a cooler river terrace at Maraekakaho provides acidity and a flinty grapefruit note.
