Wine tasting notes

The season allowed fruit to ripen wonderfully, producing powerful opulent flavours and a flinty mineral backbone which combine beautifully with barrel fermentation to create Burgundian inspired Chardonnay. Flavours are reminiscent of white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish. Partial malolactic fermentation and lees stirring has enhanced the texture, complexity and mouth feel allowing it to match most entrée dishes and kaimoana. 100% grown from Escarpment’s Te Muna Road site in what can be considered a remarkable year for the variety.
