100% organic Chardonnay from the Raupo Creek vineyard in the Omaka Valley area of Marlborough, and a small portion from the Noa vineyard.
Fruit was hand-sorted and whole bunch pressed straight to barrel. Each parcel was naturally fermented in 20% new French oak, and went through naturally occurring malolactic fermentation. After 11 months in oak, the wine was blended and transferred to puncheons for a further 3 months. Unfined and only lightly filtered before bottling.
Full of concentration and poise with a broad mouthfeel, backed with firm acidity and salty minerality. The nose is savoury and complex with finely-balanced oak and just a hint of warm orchard fruit. Firm acidity and structure will allow the wine to age gracefully.
