Esk Valley Artisanal Chardonnay 2021 750ML

VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

The individual vineyard parcels were harvested separately in early March and fermented using wild yeast in French oak barriques. Seventy per cent of the wine was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation which softened the wine and added further complexity. The wine was left on its lees undergoing regular stirring before being blended and bottled in late December 2021.

TASTING NOTE

This is a rich and full flavoured Hawkes Bay Chardonnay. Its flavour profile is a mix of peach, grilled nuts, oatmeal and grapefruit with a subtle oak spice. It is both complex and delicious and a classic expression of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay.

 

ABV: 14%
