product description

Hans Family Estate Chardonnay 2018


review Hans Family Estate Chardonnay 2018Bob Campbell, MW: 93/100. Golden colour from an extended period of skin-contact with peach, brioche, ginger, and a myriad of subtle flavours. A generously- proportioned chardonnay with a great texture. Quite developed but should continue to deliver pleasure for some time.


Tasting Note:

Super inviting – lightly smoky with cool stoney notes. This wine offers a persistent and incredibly intense core fruit flavour of melon and papaya. So much so that the oak is lightly detectable, revealing more complexity with every sip. Rich and curvaceous across the tongue, yet still so elegant with a silky, smooth lingering finish.

Winemaking: The ideal warm and long growing season of 2017 together with our low yield philosophy produced perfect healthy and flavourful berries with a gentle perfume, ripened to perfection from the 20-year-old vines. The fruit was left on the skins for an extended time to extract the superb flavours. Then gently pressed and transferred the must in in 500 litre French oak puncheons (50% new) for a natural (wild yeast) fermentation until there was no sugar left. Its fine lees has been regularly stirred assisting to the wines remarkable silkiness, complexity and depth. The wine had 18 months in the barrel to mature and flourish but will develop into something heavenly with bottle age. No cold stabilization. Unfined and only lightly filtrated to retain all the goodness.

Cellaring potential: 2027+

Closure: Cork

Please note: the wines from New Zealand's Hans Herzog Estate are sold under the Hans Family Estate brand in Europe.
