Gibbston Vineyard China Terrace Chardonnay 2021 750ml

The China Terrace Vineyard is located in the Bendigo subregion of Central Otago. Gently sloped and north facing, it has 4 clones of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay planted over some 7 hectares. Being over 320m, it retains a coolness relative to Bendigo’s natural warmth. This, and the complex accumulation of loess, clay and schist in its soil, gives wines of fresh, bright complexity.

From a superb site that delivers immaculate Chardonnay: pristine, long, elegant. Full natural barrel fermentation in French oak, 20% new. Crisp, floral and delightful.
