Volumes of white peach & apricot with creamy toasty nutty notes brought to focus with an opulent and juicy grapefruit finish.
The tiny volume of grapes for this Chardonnay come from the Queensberry vineyard in Central Otago. The grapes were pressed, and the free run portion drained to barrel with full solids. The wine fermented naturally to dryness, with malo-lactic fermentation continuing in late spring. Eleven months in barrel and 50% of it is a new D&J barrel.
