Penny Lane Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay


Hb Pure Chardonnay 750ml _7906


Vintage 2012

The wine shows aromas of nectarine, white peach, toasty characters and a hint of citrus. The palate is well balanced with a fine acidity and soft peach flavours.

Winemaking:

This 2012 Chardonnay was sourced from all three of our Hawkes Bay chardonnay vineyards, Riverview, Kinross and Tantallon. The three vineyards are located in three quite distinct viticultural sub regions. Tantallon is the warmest of the sites and also the earliest ripening. As a result the flavours tend toward to riper spectrum of pineapple and tropical fruit. It also tends to be a bit shorter and length and more upfront. Kinross is the coolest and also latest ripening, flavour tend to be more in the citrus zone and when fully ripe gives intense rock melon and blood orange characters. Our Riverview vineyard is perhaps most suited to the variety with very free draining soils and typical flavours of stone fruit and ripe nectarine.
The wine was bottled in June 2013.
