This Chardonnay is a mix of the Mendoza clone and Clone15 from the Ngatarawa and Taradale areas in the Hawke’s Bay. Free-draining stony silty loams are the predominate soil type in this area. The crop was kept low and well exposed to ensure good even ripening and flavour development.

This Chardonnay was cool fermented with both aromatic yeasts and Burgundy style yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation was completed, the wine was left for an extended period on yeast lees to promote textural qualities and mouthfeel. The wine exhibits pineapple and grapefruit flavours with a rich mealy texture.
