Black Cottage Chardonnay 2020

$17.49

Citrus and mineral notes mingled with toasty vanilla bean and burnt lemon butter flavours. Undertones of macadamia nut and lemon balm come together. The palate is textural and is well-balanced with great freshness and focus.

Notes

Covid-19 made harvest 2020 extremely challenging but it was an epic vintage quality wise. A warm, dry season with cool nights, typical of Marlborough, led to good acid levels. The season produced pristine fruit with beautifully ripe flavours. The rare Swiss clone 2/23 chardonnay grapes were sourced from a single vineyard in the Wairau Valley. The wine
was fermented on light solids, followed by full malolactic fermentation and aged on French oak.
