Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

Refined, elegant and restrained, with the benchmark Wither Hills fruit profile of white peach, lime, flint, grapefruit pith and sorbet notes interlaced with fine grained french oak nuances of spice, nutmeg and toasted cashew.

All this is bound up with the natural fruit structure, seamless acidity and poise from Mendoza clone along with the texture and minerality of our Rarangi vineyard component, making this Chardonnay simply irresistible!

He has a wealth of wine growing and winemaking experience across New Zealand and has worked internationally in Sonoma in California, Margaret River in Western Australia, Burgundy in France, and Puglia in Italy.
