COLERE CHARDONNAY 18
This Chardonnay is a characterful and complex wine soured from the Hope Valley in Nelson. The nose is light but tightly bound by clear aromas of citrus and stone fruits, with a subtle flinty layer, unfolding nutty elements and complex oxidative detail. The palate possesses a subtly concentrated core, with the wine following an almost grainy-textured phenolic line, with fresh acidity enlivening the mouthfeel, and some underlying alcoholic drive lending power. A little oak spice and creamy, neutral barrel ferment derived notes compliment by adding a hint of textural interest.
Colere wines undergo natural wild fermented and are bottled unfiltered.
