This wine offers a range of aromas including lemon zest, red apple and brioche. The palate is ripe and juicy with citrus and peach flavours, a soft texture and a lovely, clean acidity. A deliciously pure expression of Chardonnay highlighting the variety’s natural fruit characters together with some richness and balanced by a fresh acidity.

Vineyards and viticulture

Single vineyard wine from our coastal vineyard where the sea breezes moderate temperatures, this block is situated on the banks of the Wairau Diversion.


The grapes are hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed and the juice settled briefly before being racked to French oak barrels (22% new). The juice was fermented ‘wild’ and encouraged to undergo full malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked from barrel and blended prior to being bottled here at the winery some ten months later.

Food Pairing

Easy to enjoy on its own, or to accompany seafood, creamy risottos and pasta dishes, fresh salmon, soft white cheeses and chicken.
