Black Cottage Chardonnay 2021

$18.00

Apricot and flinty notes mingle with bread crust and cashew nut flavours. Undertones of fennel, minerals and lemon come together. The palate is savoury and is well-balanced with a lovely creamy mouthfeel.

Notes

Crops were down due to early spring frosts and a cold, wet flowering period. Summer was incredibly dry and this lead to an early harvest. The fruit quality was outstanding and wines from the 2021 vintage might just be exceptional. 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 with French oak.
