2014 Serie Luminosa Chardonnay
Our intention is to fashion a wine that is nuanced, complex, combining finesse, elegance, purity and depth of flavour with remarkable persistence. The fruit is sourced principally from our Forest Grove and Gnarawary Road vineyards and is 100% hand-picked. We encourage a degree of wild ferment, extended lees contact and bâttonage help build texture and savoury elements in to the wine and the wine undergoes 100% malo-lactic fermentation. The finest French barrels build character into the wine, complementing the fruit as a gentle seasoning, rather than dominating it. The wine has excellent cellaring potential.
Awards & Reviews
The wine has fragrant aromas of yellow nectarine, restrained white peach and nashi pear, a floral perfume of orange blossom and oatmeal, all showing great intensity and harmony.
The refined and textural palate continues with citrus and a freshening acidity - grapefruit and lemon - supported by the complexity of nougat and subtle smoky matchstick character. The texture is juicy with a taut framework complemented by our trademark spring water minerality – the melding of delicately spiced oak and beautiful fruit is faultless. A wine of great length, elegance and definition that coats the palate perfectly. This wine is youthful but will age beautifully.
