Jackson Estate - Shelter Belt Chardonnay 2011-12White Wine
Bright citrus fruit and spice together with waves of savoury aromatics flow to a generously fruited and finely textured palate. A lovely core of ripe acidity lends the wine balance and length, and frames the wonderful fruit purity.
Jackson Estate embodies the very best of Marlborough, New Zealand, and is a testament to the vision and determination of the Stichbury and Jackson Families who have farmed the land on the Wairau River plain at Jacksons road for more than 160 years.
This wine is an expression of a single site, and is named after a large shelterbelt of trees separating the grounds of the Jackson Estate homestead from the vineyard.
