About the wine:
The gleaming Queen of White Grapes, good Chardonnay is all about substance and complexity and our Lustrous wine is just that, showcasing the myriad of flavour profiles that come from the free-draining soils of Hawke's Bay.
A blend from several vineyard sites and fermented in French Oak barriques, the result is an extremely more-ish Chardy rich in flavour and texture with the perfect balance of fresh acidity and ample structure.
Reductive fermentation aromas of gunflint and hazelnut are intertwined with sumptous stone fruits, citrus peel an classic Hawke's Bay almond mealiness - a compelling example of why Chardonnay remains the Lustrous Queen.
