Description

Auction Lot Details

Our Chardonnay vineyards in the Tuki Tuki valley are clay loam soils, over a shallow calcareous clay pan derived from limestoine outwash, on a bed of river gravels. These hard soils naturally devigorate the vine while the limestone contirbution delivers and element of minrality to the wines, and the cooling afternoon sea breeze helps ensure excellent flavour and acid retention.

Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed directly to barrel, and allowed to undergo full wild fermentation, this unique wine was blended solely for the Hawke’s Bay Charity Auction, to showcase our favourite Chardonnay appellation.
