Huia are a boutique Marlborough producer with a focus on creating organic, biodynamic wines and taking a natural approach to winemaking.
Their 2021 chardonnay is in pristine condition. The fruit came from their home vineyard and was carefully handled in the winery before full malolactic fermentation in French oak. The result is a deliciously ripe, complex glass of wine. Layers of stone fruit and citrus flavours flood the palate and a touch of vanilla rounds things out. Exceptional.
The winery writes "On the nose Huia Chardonnay shows ripe peach and pear that combines with lifted vanilla pod. The palate has mixed rich stone and citrus fruit with a silky creamy texture. This wine is delicious with chargrilled salmon, lobster or crayfish, roasted or baked chicken, pasta in cream sauces, mature brie and other soft cheeses and well, pretty much most foods because you know - chardonnay rules. It’s a dry one so remember to eat your fat while drinking this beauty."
