About the range:

HomeBlock Range: Paying homage to our unique patch of land in Waimauku. Hand picked and crafted from small parcels of grapes, our Homeblock range is the result of minimal winemaker intervention intimately bringing to life the wine, our history and provenance.

 

About the wine:

The third offering from our 11-year-old Chardonnay vines conveys elegant words spoken with a firm voice. 2019 was an outstanding Vintage in Auckland. Warm, dry conditions allowed us to pick the Chardonnay at perfect ripeness.

 

The Waimauku clay soils of our Home Block have produced a Chardonnay with layers of pink grapefruit, baked nectarine and gunflint with a slightly assertive structure. Curated with fine french oak, this provides a bold framework for the layers of interest. Hints of lemon curd and hazelnut further add to the array of flavour and minerality, all sewn together by fine acidity which adds length and persistence. This has been a labour of love from the vineyard through to the bottle. We think it exemplifies the appeal of Chardonnay - the combination of finesse and complexity. 

 

No other variety so vividly projects both the individual components of terroir and winemaking influence, and in such harmony. 

 

For all the Chardonnay lovers out there.
