Saint Clair Marlborough Origin Chardonnay 2019

Fresh and fruit driven with layers of stone fruit, lemon curd, hazelnut and spice

Colour:
Pale gold.

Aroma:
Lifted, elegant aromas of peach and nectarine with a hint of spice, coffee, and sweet pastry.

Palate:
Fresh and fruit-driven, the palate is full-bodied with a round and rich texture. Flavours of ripe stone fruit, nashi pear and a subtle spice note lead to a full, lingering finish.

Ageing Potential:
Perfect for drinking immediately, this Chardonnay will be at its best over the next two to three years.

Viticulture and Winemaking:
Fruit was carefully selected from several quality vineyards within Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. Each parcel was chosen to add complexity and fullness as well as impart balance and offer particular characteristics to the final wine. The wine is partially fermented in new and seasoned French and American oak barrels. Each barrel underwent malolactic fermentation to add depth and give fullness to the palate. After eight months barrel aging the wine was blended and carefully prepared
for bottling.
