Wairau River Chardonnay 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

COLOR Pale gold AROMA Fruitful aromas of nectarine and citrus, complemented by delicate floral and savory notes. TASTE The aromatic characteristics translate generously through the palate with lime, ripe peach and biscuit flavors complemented and finely integrated in French oak. Length/Type of Fermentation: After a whole-bunch press the juice was fermented in a mix of newand old French oak barriques with a small portion in stainless steel. Length/Type of Aging: After 10 months the wine was blended and left to settle before bottling on the Wairau River Estate.
