AUNTSFIELD COB COTTAGE CHARDONNAY MARLBOROUGH 18
Auntsfield continues the proud heritage of Marlborough’s first vineyard and winery established in 1873. Our Single Block wines display qualities distinctive to grapes grown within a defined
area at Auntsfield Estate. Consistent quality and character over many vintages has separated these single blocks out as producing our Reserve Wines.
Cob Cottage Chardonnay – This small 2 hectare block is situated at the very southern elevated corner of the vineyard next to some old Oak trees. It has a unique free draining soil made up of crushed Greywacke rock that has fallen from the steep hill behind.
Displays concentrated aromas of ripe nectarine and white peach with undertones of citrus peel. Lifted notes of dried herbs and wood spice compliment nuanced aromas of roasted hazelnut, wet stone and honeycomb.
The pallet is concentrated and beautifully textured with a flowing mouth-feel. The fruit weight and oak balance layer with luscious acidity to provide a superb fresh, linear and creamy structure.
