Marlborough Chardonnay - Cloudy Bay
The grapes were hand-picked and carefully sorted. After gentle pressing, the juice was settled and racked before being transferred to French oak barriques. After the fermentation, the wine rested in the barrels for 11 months before blending. 21% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation.
