TAKAPOTO ESTATE RESERVE CHARDONNAY HAWKE'S BAY 18
Exceptional hand-picked grapes from a coastal Chardonnay block. After gentle pressing, the free run juice is poured into barrel without clarification. The juice underwent fermentation with its own naturally occurring wild yeast. Regular lees stirring occurred during the Winter months before undergoing malolactic fermentation in Spring. The wine spent 20 months in French oak with minimal intervention and filtration. A bold & complex nose with hints of honeysuckle, pineapple and butterscotch. On the palate, the wine is rich with notes of, ripe white peach, toffee, melon with minerality and a spicy finish. Only two barrels of this wine were made.
