Blend and Origin
While 2017 in Marlborough was one of the driest vintages in history, warm weather leading up to the harvest allowed optimal grape ripening. With the Wairau and Southern Valley vines imparting their own personality to the chardonnay, the wine was fermented in French oak (15% new) with wild yeast. Further ageing of 11 months helped the wine to become complete and balanced.

Bright and unexpectedly complex
One for delicate seafood
A perfect pairing with fresh oysters. Or serve a dish of shiitake and bok choy dumplings to complement the wine’s elegant aromas.
This chardonnay’s aromatic character is a wonderful complement to fish. Try crab ravioli with lemon butter, grilled halibut with tarragon beurre blanc and asparagus, or classic sole meunière.
