Limeworks Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Our SV Chardonnay comes from fruit harvested from our famed ‘Middle Road’ vineyard. This property has been owned by Coopers Creek since the late 1980s and has produced beautiful fruit year after year. The vineyard is strewn with limestone and in fact sits next to a limeworks (hence the name for this wine). Machine harvested fruit was trucked to our winery in Huapai. The wine started fermenting in tank and was then sent to oak to complete ferment and to go through malolactic fermentation. The oak was a mixture of new and seasoned American barrels and some seasoned French barrels. The wine stayed in oak until late November 2013. - Winery notes The Wine A stylish Chardonnay, mouth-filling and smooth. Not heavy, but with great depth of flavor, it shows maturity balancing sweet citrus and grapefruit aromas with delicate oak and nut overtones. Everything lingers neatly on the finish.
