Winemaker's notes

decor wave

A combination of handpicked and machine harvested fruit was picked ideal ripeness and gently pressed. The juice was settled and racked off solids then fermented with a range of vessels, temperatures and yeast strains to give complexity of aroma and mouth feel. After aging on yeast lees with regular stirring, the batches were racked, blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Medway Vineyards

Vineyard

This Chardonnay was handpicked at full ripeness from the stunning Medway vineyard in the Awatere Valley, renowned for having extremely tough growing conditions with very hard soils and huge diurnal shifts. The fluctuating temperatures enabled great flavour to develop during the hot days, yet retain natural acidity and freshness from the cold nights
