Leveret Estate Chardonnay 2020


This is very tasty for the price.

The grapes for this wine were hand harvested at our Riverview Winery. The fruit was pressed direct to barrel where it was allowed to undergo wild fermentation. Following fermentation the wine was inoculated for Malolactic fermentation. After approximately 18 months in oak, the wine was transferred to our Katikati winery for finishing and bottling." Winery
"Calm, elegant and fragrant with aromas of peaches and whipped cream, vanilla and apple, wood smoke and nut. On the palate – full bodied expression with flavours in reserve of the nose – wood smoke and vanilla, apple and peach. A mix of wood tannins and medium+ acidity layer in mouthfeel and contrast while the core of fruits showcase the youth and freshness. A balance and well made wine with plenty of length and lots of harmony. Best drinking from purchase and through 2025+." 92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, July 2021
