Lemon yellow in the glass, this Waipara Chardonnay is warm and rich. Aromas of ripe, lush nectarine and white peach are layered with fennel and lightly roasted chestnuts. Rich and textural palate with coconut, peaches and pear finishing with nutmeg and lightly oaked.
Sourced from a single block of Mendoza Chardonnay grown on the Riverview vineyard on Glasnevin Gravels. the vines were carefully hand pruned and fruit handpicked in mid-April after a warm, dry growing season. The fruit attained full ripeness in the cool, dry Autumn and see lignification and skin ripeness gives the wine full bodied fruit filled balanced palate.
