Winemaker Notes
Our 2020 Plainsman SV Chardonnay is an 80:20 blend from Apatu Farms Vineyard and our very own Middle Road Vineyard. 2020 was a stunning year in Hawkes Bay and we were delighted to be able to harvest this fruit in beautiful condition. Post pressing and settling, the juice was run off to one-year old and seasoned barrels for fermentation and MLF. Post MLF, the wine was matured in oak, on full lees, until January 2021.
Alc 13% Acid 6.1g/L Res sugar <1g/L pH 3.46
Tasting Notes
Colour: Very pale gold in the glass at bottling, but will slowly deepen with time. Bouquet: A melange of vanilla, cream, sweet lemon, grapefruit, hazelnut, and subtle oak. Palate: This is a medium weight, rich Chardonnay. It has sweet fruit, beautiful texture and length.
Already approachable, but will cellar happily into the medium term in a cool environment.
Food Matching
The oak ageing makes this wine an excellent match with full flavoured rich dishes, in particular poultry, pork, salmon and crayfish.
Suggested Wine List Description
A subtle, creamy-textured wine, it has very good depth of ripe, peachy, slightly leesy flavours, considerable complexity, balanced acidity and lots of drink-young charm.
