         Certified Sustainable Producer Winegrowing New Zealand NZ Wine





Limited Release Vertical Collection
One Bottle each in a Wood Box
Bottles Signed by the Winemaker


For nearly 30 years we have been producing Estate Chardonnay and the wine is still a leading lady.

We are pleased to offer a limited release vertical of 2007, 2008 and 2009 Estate Chardonnay from the Library presented in a three (3) bottle wood box.  

Farmed naturally and organically, the Chardonnay vines are hand-tended and the fruit is hand-harvested. The wine is naturally fermented in large French oak barrels by the indigenous yeast and bacteria that live in the vineyard (our secret sauce). Fermentation is long and slow, taking 10-12 months to complete. 

Original Tasting Notes by Bob Campbell, Master of Wine:

2007 Chardonnay 92 Points A fine-grained Chardonnay with a linear palate that leads to a lingering finish. The wine shows a lot of winemaking influence with classy oak, nutty yeast lees and sizzled butter characters that dominate citrus fruit flavours. An austere and fairly dry wine with good bottle development potential 21/4/2009

2008 Chardonnay 95 Points Lively, scented wine with impressively pure citrus, white peach and mineral characters seasoned with toasty oak and yeast lees characters. The wine has an ethereal texture and a lingering finish with a great balance between fruity acidity and fruit/alcohol sweetness. High energy Chardonnay with subtle power 26/2/2012

2009 Chardonnay 95 Points Rich, mellow Chardonnay showing good toasty bottle development from a couple of years (I assume) in bottle. An attractive mix of roasted nut, brioche and white peach flavours with a suggestion of minerality. Smooth textured and with a lengthy finish 20/1/2013
