Bright, even straw-yellow colour with pale gold hues and some depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and gently voluminous with well-concentrated aromas showing an array of fresh white and yellow stonefruits entwined with piquant, nutty oak and an amalgam of creamy barrel-ferment and MLF notes, unfolding minerally lees and toasty oak detail with aeration.

Medium-full bodied, the palate is harmoniously integrated with interwoven flavours of yellow stonefruits, creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak, with a layer of mealy complexities. The palate is stylishly rich, revealing positive palate presence, the flavours filling the mouth.

The wine flows smoothly on a fine-textured line with underlying alcohol power and fresh, lacy acidity, leading to a long and sustained finish with stonefruit, mealy and toasty flavours. This is a stylishly rich and harmonious, complex layered Chardonnay with stonefruit, mealy and nutty flavours.

Match with grilled seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. Chardonnay clones 15, 95 and 548, from the Dartmoor and Omarunui vineyards, vines 5-15 y.o., hand-picked, WBP and fully barrel-fermented, partially with indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months on lees in 30% new French oak, with 95% MLF. 19.0-/20 Mar 2017
