Winery Tasting Notes

Winemaking Note

The Chardonnay grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the morning, then destemmed, crushed and pressed to stainless steel tanks. The juice was allowed to settle and was then racked and fermented using a neutral yeast. Approximately 40% of the juice was fermented in new French medium toasted barriques. The

medium toasting allowed the fruit characters typical of Marlborough to show through the subtle French oak.

After completing fermentation in stainless steel, the balance of the wine was aged in one and two year old oak for nine months, with approximately 25% undergoing malolactic fermentation. The malolactic fermentation is used to help lower the natural acid while still retaining fruit freshness and to give the wine a balance between acid, oak and fruit. Each vineyards fruit was fermented separately to allow more scope when blending.
