Just like the Central Otago gold fields from which it hails, this wine shines with its purity of fruit and subtle minerality.
As the previous winemaker at Akarua, Matt Connell brings a wealth of winemaking experience to the party. This ultra-premium Chardonnay fruit was hand harvested from Lowburn vineyards, whole bunch pressed and fermented in French barriques.
Go for gold and invest in a bottle of this beautiful drop.
The winery writes "White stone fruit notes on the nose leads into upfront fruit intensity highlighting nectarine and lemon characters that build and linger on the palate. The wine is rich with fine acidity and lingering finish."
