This Wine has undergone a secondary fermentation in the bottle being in extended contact with its yeast lees for over three years now. We batch disgorge this wine in small parcels. The stylish, tightly structured 2012 vintage was made from Wairarapa Chardonnay, with some use of old barrels.
Fragrant, it is crisp and elegant, very lively and finely balanced, with lemony, faintly nutty flavours, a subtle yeastiness, and good intensity and persistence.
