SOILS AND VITICULTURE

With an incredible track record of awards and accolades, the Keltern Vineyard has truly established itself as one of New Zealand’s premier sites for Chardonnay. Located on the red-metal soils east of the Maraekakaho region in Hawkes Bay, the Keltern Vineyard is a warm inland site, buffered by the Ngaruroro River. Established on an ancient riverbed, the vineyard has deep loams and large free-draining gravel rocks

Winemaker's Comment

The nose is youthful and reserved, tightly bound with hints of lemon, yellow grapefruit and gunsmoke intermingling with nuts and crushed rock. The palate is sleek and refined, the intensity of flavour immense yet understated and pure. Texturally showcased by chalky acidity and subtle grainy oak influences, this wine will age superbly to unfold a complex mineral and toast-like character.
