NEW!

Uncharted

Chardonnay

Discover our new range that showcases Marlborough's finest.


This generous Chardonnay is already a favourite among our team! We use only selected parcels of hand-picked fruit from the Wairau and Southern Valleys, and we pick early to ensure the beautiful natural tartness Marlborough is known for. Sites are chosen for their heavier soils which gives this wine a wonderful minerality.

On The Nose

Look for notes of white peach, lemon, toasted hazelnut, and flint.

On The Palate

Enjoy the rich, concentrated palate, with bright zest balancing the fruit sweetness. Ripe lemon and peach flavours, with grapefruit on the finish.

Winemaking

We pay particular attention to detail in our Uncharted wines, hand-harvesting only small premium parcels of fruit from selected Wairau and Southern Valleys vineyards with heavier soils. This adds texture and subtle flint notes, and ensures an intense and distinctive flavour profile that characterises these subregions.

Our winemaking team lovingly shape this wine with careful hands-on techniques. The wine is barrel fermented at a warmer temperature in 300L French oak hogsheads which builds a really beautiful texture.

A portion of the wine is then allowed to go through malolactic fermentation to add richness and roundness, complementing the fresh, bright acidity of the remaining portion. A selection of French and German oak barrels including 12% new barrels are picked for maturation, allowing us to bring out a subtle oak character while letting the fruit shine through.

Reviews

"Classic, enticing and familiar bouquet of Chardonnay with aromas of sweet peaches and just whipped cream, vanilla and baking spice moments with a mild toasty oak appeal. On the palate - dry, nicely weighted with a creamy and spice mouthfeel, a core of fruit and contrasting acidity and warming alcohol. The finish is lengthy with fruit, spice and wood flavours that mirror the nose. Great drinking from today and through 2025."
