The Vineyard

Our Brightwater vineyard is exceptionally stony with free-draining soils, which are very hard on farm equipment. The large stones, however, are vital for holding the warmth of the Nelson sun and for ripening the grapes. Lively fruit characters are evident in fruit harvested from this block.

Winemaker's Notes

The ‘hen and chicken’ berries of the Mendoza clone of Chardonnay used in this blend give full tropical flavours. The fruit was harvested, brought to the winery, and pressed immediately, then cooled for a 24-hour settling period. Following this, the juice was racked and warmed for inoculation.

Primary alcoholic fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks, with the young wine then being gravity fed into one, two and three-year-old French barriques. In spring 2019 the Chardonnay then underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel. Barrels were hand-stirred regularly to build palate weight and structure. The wine then sat on lees for a total of 13 months or so before being racked from barrique, blended and prepared for bottling.

"Phenomenal value at under $20, this Nelson chardonnay has a supple cashew note against the tropical peach with hints of pineapple on the nose. The wine glides easily on the palate with an interesting savoury character which helps to complete this well-rounded wine."
