A departure in style from what is traditionally thought of for Waiheke Chardonnay, this wine is a stand out from the fantastic 2015 vintage. Almond, blood orange, white peach and a struck match type flintiness embellishes the nose. Delicate and juicy acidity forms the building blocks of a charming palate. There is great phenolic texture which gives the wine incredible length and persistence. A memorable wine; we are very proud of it.
