Black Estate Vineyard - North Canterbury | Chardonnay 2012

Home Chardonnay 2012

Hand harvested from our 3.8 ha block of 17 year old Mendoza Chardonnay vines grown on own roots in calcareous clay soils. Whole bunch pressed, no settling, wild fermentation in 228L and 500L tight grained French casks (1-5 year old, 15% new) and maturation on lees.

Pale straw/white gold hue. Lime, citrus, white peach and hazel nut, with underlying toast and mineral aromas. The palate is fresh and crisp. Expansive weight with a fine and salivating mineral line, extending the flavour length.
