2017 Village Chardonnay, Kumeu River, New Zealand

Tasting Notes

The perfect aperitif Chardonnay this wine also goes very well with all types of seafood. Fermented 80% in old French oak barriques, and 20% in stainless steel tanks there is very little oak influence on either nose or palate. This has allowed the vibrant fruit to show through beautifully with lively lime and lemon aromas and a flinty, mineral edginess with hints of fig and white peach.

Vintage Description

Hand harvested Whole-bunch pressed Indigenous yeast fermentation 80% barrel fermentation 20% tank fermentation 100% malo-lactic fermentation 11 months maturation in barrel.

The weighty mid-palate also shows peachy ripeness along with crisp acid minerality that gives the wine a refreshing cleansing quality. This wine is delightful as an aperitif, and even better to drink with fish and shellfish.
