Winemaker Notes
This chardonnay was crafted from the excellent 2020 Hawkes Bay harvest. After a dry warm growing season we harvested the perfectly ripened fruit off our Limeworks Vineyard. Post pressing and settling the juice was run off to barrel (20% new American) for fermentation and MLF. The wine was left on lees for 9 months barrel maturation and lees contact. Barrel were emptied in January 2021, and the wine was fined, filtered, and bottled.

Tasting Notes
Colour: This vineyard always has a bit of colour: Pale gold in the glass at bottling, but will slowly deepen with time. Bouquet: Profound! A melange of vanilla, cream, sweet lemon, grapefruit, hazelnut, and subtle oak. Palate: Powerful! This is a big, rich Chardonnay. It has weight, sweet fruit, beautiful texture and length.
Cellaring
Already approachable, but will cellar happily into the medium term in a cool environment.
Food Matching
The oak ageing makes this wine an excellent match with full flavoured rich dishes, in particular poultry, pork, salmon and crayfish.
Suggested Wine List Description
A stylish Chardonnay, mouth-filling and smooth. Not heavy, but with great depth of flavour, it shows maturity balancing sweet citrus and grapefruit aromas with delicate oak and nut overtones. Everything lingers neatly on the finish.
