Decanter Top 20 NZ Chardonnay from 2020
Our Chardonnay clones were selected to produce high quality Chardonnay. Low yields, gravel soils and a dry summer brings out the very best of these clones.
Wine Making Details
Less than 150 doz cases were made of this outstanding Chardonnay. Gently pressed directly to barrel where it underwent a cool ferment followed by full malolactic fermentation. After that it was allowed to age in barrel for about 15 months (100% french oak barriques).
