Tasting Note

Fresh and flinty aromas of pink grapefruit, flint, and nectarine. The palate is bright with white peach, hazelnut salivating saline characters. This is an unfiltered wine with small amounts of sediment. Please allow the bottle to stand and settle before pouring. Decanting will allow maximum expression of aroma and purity of fruit to emerge.

Vineyard: Home Vineyard, Waipara Valley, New Zealand. This Black Estate Home Young Vines Chardonnay was grown on our 1.0 Ha vineyard located 6 kilometres North East of the Waipara Junction, in the Omihi sub-district of Waipara Valley, North Canterbury. This is a north facing sedimentary clay fan on a gentle hill side slope, that sits above the original older Chardonnay vines. The soils are mainly Awapuni clay with calcium carbonate deposits. This new planting completed in 2011.

Winemaking: All grapes were whole bunch pressed over a 4 hour press cycle. The juice was settled in tank and then transferred to 500L barrels where 21% where new and made from tight grained French oak. No additions were made to the juice except vineyard derived yeast propagated from a vineyard starter from the Home vineyard. The wine matured on fermentation lees and then went through full Malo-lactic fermentation in early spring. The wine was blended to tank after 10 months in barrel, allowed to settle and then bottled without fining or filtration.
