“Complex, engaging and seductive, the bouquet shows golden peach, mango, vanilla custard and roasted hazelnut characters. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent fruit weight and concentration, together with creamy mouthfeel and brilliantly pitched acidity. It is opulent and graceful at the same time with plenty of delectable flavours." 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
Only the best, hand harvested fruit from our Middle Road Chardonnay block goes into our Swamp Reserve Chardonnay, and as a result we made three very careful passes through the best part of the vineyard. This fruit was refrigerated and trucked to Auckland for processing. The three parcels were kept as separate batches right up until assemblage in January. We made a further selection before bottling and ultimately used about 75% of what we had harvested. The balance went into our Limeworks Chardonnay. Ultimately, this wine is 100% barrel fermented, close to 100% MLF and used around 30% new French oak barrels. Winery notes
