Jackson Estate Chardonnay Marlborough 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This single vineyard wine was named for the large shelterbelt of trees separating the grounds of the Jackson Estate homestead from the vineyard. Bright citrus fruit and spice together with waves of savoury lees driven aromatics flow to a generously fruited and finely textured palate. A lovely core of ripe calcerous acidity lends the wine great tension, balance and length, and frames the wonderful fruit purity of this single vineyard site.

Since planting our pioneering vineyards, established three decades ago, time, tide and fortune have smiled on Jackson Estate, and the unparalleled affinity between Marlborough and fine wine has been spectacularly realised.

Light, crisp tropical fruit nose. At the vineyard, it's warmer during the day but cool at night, lending the tropical fruit flavors but still keeping it a crisp wine. Good creaminess on the palate with a fresh acidity. Definitely have with food. Great selection.

This single vineyard wine was named for the large shelterbelt of trees separating the grounds of the Jackson Estate homestead from the vineyard. Established three decades ago, Jackson Estate in Marlborough New Zealand produces world class estate bottled wines like this 2007 Chardonnay. The Wine Spectator scored it 90 points and called it “smooth and spicy”. Barrel fermented in 25% new oak with all natural yeasts. The wine is then aged on the lees before bottling.
