Winemakers Notes:

 Another stunning Hawke’s Bay vintage. Our 2020 Chardonnay was picked just before Covid19 got serious. We were happy to have the juice bubbling away happily in their barrels whilst NZ was put into lockdown. Hand-picked, whole bunch pressed straight to barrel, wild ferment, regular lees stirring, full malo-lactic fermentation. The 2020 edition received no new oak letting the one and two year old French oak barrels shine through, offering a little more subtlety than previous vintages. 

Textural, complex and interesting we look forward to how this wine develops in the bottle over the coming months and years.
