2020 Te Kano Chardonnay

$35 NZD inc. GST

SKU: 20TKCH Category:

The Life Series captures the essence of Te Kano’s Estate vineyards, using parcels of fruit from across our sub-regions to give a snapshot of the season and our unique expression of Central Otago. A complex and elegant Chardonnay with aromas of white peach, melon, toasted coconut and creamy vanilla. Peach and pear follow through the palate with spicy oak nuances building into a complex array of brioche and biscuit undertones. A hint of citrus peel keeps the palate tight and fresh. This complex wine shows lovely poise and walks a fine line between richness and minerality.

Description

Vintage

The 2020 season started cool and dry, with warmer Summer temperatures leading into a long, warm Autumn. The season delivered lower yields of small berries, with excellent ripeness and flavour concentration.

Vineyards

A combination of our Central Otago sub-regions. Northburn shows fine boned acidity, pure fresh fruit flavours and a crystalline minerality derived from Schist based soils, while Bannockburn gives rich ripe tropical notes and mid palate weight.

Varietal

100% Chardonnay, Mendoza clone.

Winemaking

Vineyard parcels were individually hand harvested and whole bunch pressed to tank for light settling. Barrel fermentation and extendedlees stirring over 9 months helped to build midpalate texture and complexity, prior to blending of selected barrels in Spring.
