Description

2017 Hells Gate Chardonnay

Winemaker’s Comments

The structure of the wine reflects the soil type, the lighter soils add fresh aromatics and mineral tones. The wine shows ripe citrus flavours, hints of mineral characters and subtle spicy oak from a portion of the blend that was stored in barriques. The wine was made in a light oak style with the focus on fruit.
