Left Field Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Individual parcels of fruit were picked on successive cool mornings. The grapes were pressed and the juice settled for 24 hours. The clear juice was transferred into stainless steel barrels for a three week fermentation. Once that fermentation was complete the young wine rested on its yeast lee for six months prior to blending and bottling.

Our philosophy is to achieve balanced wines, reflecting the grapes from which they are made and having the individuality of our vineyard site. Embracing the time proven traditions of the worlds great winemakers, we harvest and vinify the different parcels of our vineyard separately, which gives us small variations in flavour and texture and thus more options when it comes to blending. We aim for a synergistic effect, where the wine will be better than the sum of the individual parts. Even in our single variety wines we blend different components from different parts of the vineyard to achieve the most complete and balanced wine. Once blended, the components marry and age together, evolving towards harmony as one wine - the best possible expression of our vineyards unique character. We see ourselves as working with nature so that our wines are the unification of all the elements; our soil, cultivars, climate, and people. Read less

Tasting Notes:

Typical Chardonnay notes of white nectarine and fresh citrus show through on the nose. Subtle notes of talc, mineral and flint are in the background. The main impression on the palate is that of freshness with a hint of flintiness. The purity of the Chardonnay fruit flavor, coupled with sensitive winemaking, has resulted in a medium bodied, well focused wine. This wine is dry, but not austere which lends itself to the role of thirst quencher/whistle wetter. An excellent wine to put yourself on the outside of.

Individual parcels of fruit were picked on successive cool mornings. The grapes were pressed and the juice settled for 24 hours. The clear juice was transferred into stainless steel barrels for a three week fermentation.
