~ WINEMAKER'S NOTES Pale and straw yellow in color with a fruit-forward nose showing rich pineapple, white stonefruit, and melon characteristics. A soft, full-length palate of intense pineapple and tropical fruits.

Tasting notes
Color: Pale straw. Aroma: Ripe tropical fruits—pineapple and ripe melon—with hints of butterscotch. Palate: An approachable and full-bodied Chardonnay that shows great length and persistence. Ripe stonefruit, butterscotch, and citrus characters show through well, in a style uncluttered by oak. Cellar: Two years with confidence.

Wine maker notes
If you like Chardonnay with true expression of fruit then this is one to love! This wine does not hide behind any oak. It’s a crisp wine that tastes of the succulence and freshness of the grape. The grapes for this wine are from selected vineyards in Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay on the East Coast of New Zealand. These Chardonnay grapes were selected to create an approachable, and fruit-forward, unoaked-style Chardonnay. Exposure of the bunches to sunlight is imperative to our style, which is ripe and fruit driven. Canopy management reflects the desired flavor profile. Clone selection is important in this style as we seek intense stone fruit and pear flavors, coupled with powerful and strong citrus characters. Secondary malolactic fermentation gives nuttiness and generous mouthfeel.

Food pairing
A great match for seafood, white meats, and “fusion” food.
