Organised Chaos Chardonnay 2019
$31.50 inc. GST
Tasting Note: The Chardonnay is grown by Pieter Koopman, in the Havelock Hills. This region is characterised by its north facing aspect and its limestone rich soils. 2019 was an excellent vintage. A wet start to the season made way for plenty of heat and sunshine in the later stages of the season to give wines of great physiological ripeness, as excellent fruit expression. Fresh and vibrant, rich and textural with just a dash of nice toasty oak. Chardonnay as it should be!
Winemaking Notes: Fermented with CY3079 , the 2019 was fermented and aged in a mix of old French oak barrels (30%) and stainless steel tanks. Partial malo-lactic fermentation (40%), enables the wine to retain its freshness and really show off the limestone minerality while 6 months aging on gross lees, with weekly batonage, brings a creamy, textural element to the wine.
Region: Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand
