Organic Walnut Block Nut Cracker Chardonnay

Product Description

Rich and full bodied, with abundant flavours of stone fruit and citrus with hints of nuts. The finish is beautifully supported with elegant oak and good acidity. 750ml, Marlborough, New Zealand.

Handpicked from 20-year-old Mendoza vines, this wine is very expressive with many layers. The palate is rich and full bodied, yet displays a tightly structured minerality typical of the clone. Abundant flavours of stone fruit and citrus with hints of nuts, the finish is beautifully supported with elegant oak and good acidity.

VINEYARD

Certified organic by BioGro New Zealand. Organically managed, each plant is shoot thinned and lightly leaf plucked to provide ideal light penetration and even ripening. Very low yields ensure excellent flavours with the cool climate providing finely balanced acidity.

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

A wine created by nature’s elements. The grapes are handpicked, whole-bunched pressed, and the juice runs directly into French 500L oak puncheons. Wild yeasts from the vineyard provide a natural fermentation. The wine is left to develop in barrel for 12 months.

Cellaring potential – will mature gracefully over the next seven years.
