Classic Marlborough Chardonnay 2017$0.00
Delicious white stone fruits and spicy cinnamon oak combine with a soft acid structure and lovely minerality.
Cooler temperatures during the 2017 growing season extended the ripening period and delivered trademark Marlborough flavours. Careful vineyard and crop management decisions were made to ensure fruit was harvested clean, phenologically ripe and full of flavour. Once pressed, the juice was fermented in a selection of French oak barriques and stainless steel to achieve a nice balance between the toasty oak characters and the fresh, ripe, fruit flavours. Partial malolactic fermentation has softened the wine and added extra texture to the palate. Our 2017 Classic wine showcases some of the luscious Chardonnay flavours and aromas from our beautiful Marlborough region.
Our 2017 Classic Marlborough Chardonnay displays aromas of vanillin oak, honey dew melon and lemon peel citrus notes giving way to complex notes of clove and cinnamon. On the palate, white stone fruits and spicy cinnamon oak, with a soft acid structure and lovely minerality.
Try with a selection of soft cheeses or a Chicken Herb Risotto.
