The 2017 vintage was another great one for Chardonnay in Hawke’s Bay. A moderate spring with low frost risk and good flowering led into an extremely dry and warm summer. Above average temperatures were recorded in January and February, which set the vines up well. Some late rains alleviated the drought pressure brought about by the hot summer. The 2017 Chardonnay was sourced from a range of Hawke’s Bay vineyards which are characterised by moderate temperatures and free draining soils, perfect for producing high quality fruit.
The fruit was gently picked and pressed to give fine fresh juices with a soft texture. The batches were kept separate and fermented with a range of vessels, temperatures and yeast strains to give complexity of aroma and mouth feel. After aging on yeast lees with regular stirring, the batches were racked, blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
