CRAGGY RANGE KIDNAPPERS CHARDONNAY HAWKE'S BAY 19/20
Grapes in this Chardonnay were all grown at Te Awanga on the Hawke's Bay coast, near to Cape Kidnappers, hence the name.
This wine was made from 70% hand picked grapes which were 70% whole bunch fermented with the remaining 30% destemmed before fermentation in a combo of French oak and stainless steel tanks. All yeasts were wild and the wine was aged in French oak puncheons, 15% new for eight months. It's a full bodied, dry Chardonnay with intense zingy acidity thanks to the cool climate the grapes were grown in.
A top quality Chardonnay from Hawke's Bay - offering exceptional value for money at such a modest price.
