The Matriarch Chardonnay
Sorry all gone to family and friends!
Contact us to reserve some of the 2019 vintage available December 2019.
The queen of white wine some say, and a Hawke’s Bay signature.
Our elevated inland site with its hot days and cool nights coupled with stony free draining soils enables us to produce Chardonnay with nice ripe white stone fruit and citrus aromatics. Creamy palate from full malolactic fermentation with a fine oak backbone-delicious!
The Chardonnay vines are hand tended in Burgundian peasant fashion and selectively hand harvested. For the 2018 vintage we fermented in tank with Oak stave additions before bottling at 9 months.
Ideally matched with seafood or chicken, but try it with some Asian influenced dishes- you will be rewarded.
