Overview

Our Chardonnay is composed of estate fruit from our Home vineyard, as well as a premiere grower vineyard in the Awatere Valley. After handpicking, the fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented in French oak barriques (20% new) using indigenous yeast. Vavasour Chardonnay is made from a mix of Clone 95 (for elegance) and Mendoza (for richness). The wine was aged in oak for ten months with weekly lees stirring to enhance the texture and flavour.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

It's not just the grinding winds from the west or the imposing presence of Tapuae-O-Uenuku, the towering peak that looms over Marlborough's Awatere Valley. It's not just the deep, rocky soils formed millions of years ago by relentless glaciers that molded the landscape. It's not just the arid climate marked by sundrenched days and cold nights. It's the combination of all those things together that shape the inimitable character, flavours and textures of Vavasour wines.
