A sophisticated Chardonnay from Marlborough's boutique legend, Hans Herzog. Beautiful flavour definition with classy refinement show how superb Chardonnay can be from the sunny but cooler climate of Marlborough. Concentrated juice from lovingly tended vineyards spent 20 months in large 500 litre puncheons, under Hans' expert care. The result is perfect balance and harmony in a weighty but fine-fruited, elegantly mealy/mineral palate. Gorgeous!

What The Critics Say

4.5 Stars Michael Cooper

"At its best, this is a notably powerful wine with layers of peach, butterscotch, grapefruit and nut flavours. The pale straw 2013 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked, fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak puncheons, barrel-aged for 18 months and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. A mouthfilling, youthful wine, it has rich, ripe grapefruit and peach flavours, seasoned with biscuity oak, and a tight, slightly creamy finish. Best drinking 2017+. Certified organic."
