A legendary NZ chardonnay made from low cropped vines that undergoes a complete barrel and malo-lactic fermentation. It is a richly fruited and textured wine showing ripe stonefruit, pineapple and citrus flavours with a seamless long finish. Elston continues to improve in bottle for 3-5 years from harvest.

Winery Tasting Notes
Elston ‘11 has a brilliant, green gold colour.
Lovely aromas of nectarine and white peach, with a background of oatmeal and cedar.
It is elegant and intense, with a mineral tension in the extended palate that suggests considerable cellaring potential.
Elston ‘11 will continue to evolve in bottle for five years from harvest.
The wine matches well with full flavoured dishes based on seafood, poultry and white meats, as well as soft ripened cheeses.
