The hand-picked fruit comes in equal amounts from our clay-rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard and our Home vineyard which is made up of a variety of free draining Waimakariri soils.

The 2012 Chardonnay Reserve gives a beautiful nose of honeyed apricots, preserved ginger, cashews and cinnamon toast with a lively hint of lemon zest. Medium-bodied with a gorgeous satiny texture, it fills the palate with spicy apple and peach flavors plus nutty accents coming through on the long finish. Rating 93 - Drink by 2018, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, erobertparker.com (FEB/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
The nose is savoury and complex with finely balanced oak.
It has broad mouth feel and is backed with a firm acidity and salty minerality. This wine being based around a firm acidity and structure, with the fruit taking a backseat.
The wine can be cellared for up to 2020.
