Vineyard Description

The Ihumatao Vineyard is located in a wind protected volcanic basin on the edge of the Manukau Harbour. VSP trellising with 2-cane pruning is employed and results in low yielding vines. Free draining soils and a unique soil profile lead to the production of a very distinctive Chardonnay.

Winemaker's Comment

This wine displays a complex array of aromas and flavours. White peach, nectarine, grilled nut and oatmeal notes on the nose, followed by delicate butterscotch characters on the palate with integrated fine oak and lovely linear acidity. A medium bodied wine, it is finely balanced and elegantly textured, finishing with subtle flint nuances and a hint of chalky minerality.
