Waipara Springs - Premo Chardonnay 2013-14New Zealand White Wine
This wine has been crafted from ungrafted 28 year old Mendoza vines grown on limestone rich soils. It is a complex wine showing subtle aromas of toasted almond and brioche.
The palate is rich and beautifully balanced with great minerality, which is built around the ripe phenolic structure of this wine.
This wine will reward patient cellaring.
Match with chicken or vegetable pasta dishes.
Twenty eight-year old un-grafted Mendoza clone Chardonnay vines have produced a wine of intensely concentrated flavours and aromas.
Un-fined juice with full solids underwent a 'wild fermentation' in French oak barriques to create a wine of structure and complexity.
