A classic expression of the King of White Grapes. This is a Gisborne Classic Chardonnay - Oak barrel fermented and Oak barrel aged - picked from younger low yielding wines in the Matawhero sub region. This Chardonnay has enjoyed 14 months in French and Hungarian Oak, then bottled in June 2019. With a pale straw colour, this wine has a soft, elegant nose which delivers spices and ripe stone fruit
Le Pont 2018 Chardonnay
TASTING NOTES: The soft, elegant nose is notable for pineapple and grapefruit, which are regarded as two of the key flavours for fine White Burgundy. Our winemaker describes this as a wine with “zip” remarking on the almost flinty white stone fruit flavours, think: white fleshed Nectarine. Beneath that, is an almost sherbert like creaminess, due to the malolactic fermentation, finishing with a restrained lemony acidity, combining with finesse to produce a bready, nutty Burgundian character.
