2015 Single Vineyard Chardonnay – Arae
Made from the same spectacular tiny plot in Church Bay as our 2014 and 2013 Chardonnay, the 2015 vintage is the best expression, to date, of this unique vineyard site.
The 2015 vintage conveyed lime, grapefruit, lemon zest and gunflint, lending the wine a pristine citrus and white floral aroma, which integrates beautifully with subtle acacia and cedar notes. This is not a rich, ripe wine; it is a more linear, saline style that will improve for many years. The wine’s trademark zingy acidity and salty finish is present in abundance.
NZ $330 per case of six.
