Gibbston Vineyard China Terrace Chardonnay 2021 750ml


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.
