Rimu Grove Chardonnay Nelson 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh and vibrant; smooth round and generous. A nicely layered wine with elegant sweet nut and toasted oak notes shining through, this chardonnay has a natural affinity with food. It is drinking well now, or will mellow and mature gracefully in the cellar until 2014

Rimu Grove Winery was founded in 1995 in the rolling hills above the scenic Waimea Estuary. The search for the ultimate expression of terroir is reflected in the wines: a synergy of Nelson sunshine, Moutere clay gravels, maritime microclimate and the pursuit of perfection. In the early 1900's, a complete city plan was drawn up for Bronte peninsula of Nelson, but fate determined that this would not be so. Instead, the Bronte area was planted in apple orchards and has remained this way for years. The land is well suited for vineyards as well, with the same clay gravel soils of the surrounding Moutere Hills coupled with the moderate climate due to the proximity to the sea. Patrick and Barbara Stowe recognised this potential, purchased the land in 1995 and began to remove the existing apple trees to plant the vineyard. The winery building was completed on the site in early 2000, just in time to accommodate the inaugural Rimu Grove vintage in March 2000. What a superb way to toast the new millennium. Read less

Lively pear, citrus, apple and mineral aromatics and flavours. Fresh and vibrant; smooth, round and generous on the palate. Nicely layered with elegant oak notes followed by a long, impressive finish. A true classic in the style of Burgundy.
