Te Muna Estate
Rich and flavorful chardonnay with cooked apple, nougat, and flint on both the nose and palate. Full-bodied with salted caramel to the cooked-apple and stone character. Zingy acidity at the end. Contrastive.
94 pts James Suckling - Oct 2022
The grapes were hand-harvested, then whole bunch pressed straight to barrel without settling. The juice was fermented in one 500 Litre Puncheon and three older barriques to bring complexity. Once dry, the wine went through Malolactic fermentation while receiving 4 lees stirs over 4 months. The wine sat without sulphur until one week before blending in February. The wine received no fining, and only a light filtration before bottling.
