5 Stars – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Our Nga Waka Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented in tight-grain French oak barriques, 20% of which are new. The wine spends 10 months in barrel and is lees-stirred monthly.

A rich, complex Martinborough Chardonnay showing intense ripe stone fruit flavours underpinned by subtle spicy oak, malolactic and barrel fermentation characters, enhanced by a silky palate texture and a elegant lingering finish.

"It's wonderfully fruited and delightfully complex with apricot, vanillin oak, roasted hazelnut and brioche characters. The generously expressed palate displays excellent weight and rounded mouthfeel, beautifully complemented by creamy texture and splendidly pitched acidity, finishing long and smooth. At its best: now to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2021

Alc: 13.3%
