The 2015 vintage was warm and for the most part dry, with Chardonnay harvested in excellent condition and proving to be a highlight of the Gisborne vintage. The maritime climate of this region is perfect for slowly ripening Chardonnay promoting fruit intensity and freshness.
This wine is fruit driven in style, exhibiting ripe peach with underlying citrus and fig characters. On the palate these flavours are enhanced by a creamy texture and a delicate suggestion of oak. A medium bodied Chardonnay that is styled for enjoyment upon release with or without food.
Enjoy with an antipasto platter, chicken Caesar salad or seafood dish.
