The grapes for this elegant Gisborne Chardonnay are grown from two select parcels from the Tietjen vineyard in the Hexton Hills or “Golden Slopes” appellation of Gisborne.
The site has had a rich history in producing award-winning Chardonnay for over 20 years and the wine is made from the Mendoza clone of Chardonnay. The vines achieved good ripeness and with low yields came excellent flavours and weight to the fruit.
Colour: Lovely golden colour.
Aroma: Ripe peach and melon layered with butterscotch and toasty oak notes.
Palate: Big, rich and full with great length and weight.
