Ata Rangi 'Craighall'

Chardonnay, 2015

New Zealand White

Martinborough 75cl

From 30 year old vines. Hand-picked fruit was whole bunch pressed. Unsettled juice was fully barrel-fermented in Burgundy barriques, of which 25% was new oak, using indigenous yeasts. The lees were stirred during this time in all barrels and partial malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was aged in barrel on the lees for 12 months before bottling in July 2016.
This is classy Chardonnay. Lovely nutty, savoury nose, almost salty with stone fruits and leesy butterscotch notes some floral characters too.
Delicious balance between fruit, oak and leesy batonnage characters (bready/yeasty). Textural, creamy and nutty with stone fruit and good acidity, smoky notes and incredible length. This is awesome Chardonnay- a true New Zealand Grand Cru!
