Esk Valley Chardonnay 2016

100% Chardonnay from vineyard sites around the Hawkes Bay.

Individual vineyard parcels were harvested separately and fermented in a mix of French oak barriques and stainless steel tanks. Cultured and indigenous yeasts were utilised for fermentation and the finished wines were left on their lees until blending. Typically around 70% undergoes malolactic fermentation to naturally soften the acidity.

Winemaker's Comments

A full-bodied yet elegant style of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay exhibiting aromas of peach and melon intermingled with hints of butter, grapefruit and French oak spice.
