Bilancia Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2021 750ml

The fruit is all hand-picked, keeping each clone as separate as possible for handling in the winery. Each lot was whole-bunch pressed and the juice was run straight to puncheons and barrels, with no cold settling, for fermentation in French oak. Indigenous yeast carried the fermentation to dryness. The wine spent 16 months in oak prior to bottling; there was no fining or cold stabilisation. The aim is to produce a wine that reflects the variety and the vineyard rather than the winemaking. The result is a nicely wound, tight but not too tight, wine with an emphasis on a fresh, food-friendly style and evenly balanced palate. Ripe stonefruit on the nose and palate with great texture and character.

Alc: 14%
