Clearwater Cove Chardonnay 2015 exhibits lifted stone fruit, melon, pineapple and nutty flavours. The palate is savoury and full, finishing with a crisp, refreshing finish.
Beneath the cliff at the edge of our vineyard the cool clear waters of the South Pacific Ocean carve into the coastline. Deep coves provide precious shelter from year-round winds that whip the waves and buffet the surrounding landscape. In these beautiful but harsh conditions our vines struggle for survival; producing low yields of high quality fruit with concentrated flavours. Predominantly fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit flavours, with a small portion fermented and aged in oak barrels for a little added complexity
