Chardonnay's what made Gisborne famous - one sip of this and you'll see why. Complex with layered citrus and stone fruit aromas, lifted by savoury yeast and nutty oak characters, the palate sensation is both fresh and textured. The wine delivers Gisborne's bold elegance with a long and seamless finish. Ripe and weighty fruit flavours without the heat of excess alcohol. The wine is fermented on oak with a portion in French oak barrels. Some wild yeast fermentation along with 50 plus percent malo lactic fermentation. Take the time to swirl and smell and the wine will evolve in the glass to reveal its rich creamy stone fruited and smokey oaked complexity.
