Church Road 'Grand Reserve' Chardonnay 2014 (6 x 750mL) Hawkes Bay NZ

$36.99 per Bottle
$221.94 per package

Hand harvested and hand sorted off our lowest cropping blocks, the fruit is then carefully loaded to the press and whole bunch pressed directly to barrel for wild fermentation without any juice clarification or settling. Wild malolactic fermentation also occurs and this helps to balance acidity naturally, and adds further textural and aromatic interest. Traditionally malolactic fermentation has been associated with strong buttery characters in Chardonnay which could dominate the wine, but when handled properly this can be avoided.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/ Palate

A complex, multidimensional Chardonny with a core of stonefruit and citrus is overlaid with aromas of roasted nuts, toasted sourdough, gunflint and a hint of smoke. The palate is powerful yet restrained and savoury with fine texture, great length and balanced fresh acidity

Cellaring/ Food Matching

A fuller bodied style of Chardonnay with a moderate oak influence, the Church Road Grand Reserve Chardonnay is a great food wine. Ideally matched to seafood, poultry and light game dishes particularly where an element of creaminess, such as beurre blanc sauce is included in the dish. We expect this wine to mature

gracefully for six or more years from vintage date.
