Quarter Acre Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2020 750ML


The grapes for our Quarter Acre Chardonnay come from three vineyards; our Doc’s Block by the sea at Haumoana where the vines are about 20 years old with a splash from both our Mangatahi and Te Awanga vineyards. A hot, dry summer and a settled autumn with cool nights meant picking decisions were made easy in 2020. Chardonnay ripens slowly and responds beautifully to long dry seasons, producing grapes that are per-fect for making rich and mouth-filling wines.


We whole bunch pressed hand-picked fruit and ran the juice straight to French oak barriques, around 15% of which were new. Fermentation and ageing on lees for 11 months has captured the best of the season. Bottled un-fined in March 2021 followed by 9 months bottle ageing before release.


Flinty gun smoke with ripe peach and nectarine on the nose with underlying fresh biscuit and popcorn tones. Rich and tex-tural with baked pear and peach flavours. A strong mineral drive with gorgeous weight and a lovely long finish. Vegan friendly.

ABV: 13.5%
