    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our philosophy and stylistic direction with Chardonnay is to focus on the textural element of the palate rather than emphasising primary fruit characters. The cool temperatures in Marlborough work to retain fruit character and we want to use these characters to give more interest to the palate by fermenting warmer and using very natural techniques in our winemaking.

    The fruit was sourced from both our Home and Raupo Creek vineyards. Because of intensive viticultural practices the fruit was very well exposed and reached optium physiological ripeness before being harvested between April 12 and May 03, 2005. The fruit was handled as gently as possible and a portion briefly settled before fermentation, with the remaining part going straight to barrel. The blend was fermented in French Oak utilising only indigenous yeasts. Following primary fermentation the wine was put through malolactic fermentation, which occurred naturally in barrel. The indigenous yeast, fermentation techniques, malolactic, and extended lees contact are all used to contribute complexity, texture, and integration to the wine.
