The Raptor Chardonnay 2021
The fruit is selected and harvested from within the internationally acclaimed Gimblett Gravels wine growing district of Hawke’s Bay. A round, full, luscious palate. Aromatic dark stone fruits with mixed wild berries leading to a toasty finish.
The Falcon Chardonnay 2021
The harvested fruit was transported overnight from Hawke’s Bay to our Marlborough winery. On arrival, the grapes were inoculated with yeast to begin the fermenting process. We regularly plunged and pumped-over for high flavour extraction during fermentation. Creating a full bodied palate with dark fruity elements and hints of savoury olives and warmed tar.
