Overview

Grape

Chardonnay

Its Origins

Carrick is an integrated organic vineyard, winery, restaurant and cellar door in Bannockburn Central Otago. Known for their quality premium Pinot Noir, Carrick also grows and makes Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc; wines noted for their fruit expression and clarity. Steve Green, the owner-manager of Carrick, the viticulturist, the winemaker and the chef brings understanding and experience to making fine wine and food. This pride is reflected in the care of the vineyard and environment – Carrick has a flock of free range hens, giant compost heaps and a community garden, all part of the Carrick philosophy.

What The Critics Say

92/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Barrel-fermented chardonnay using indigenous yeasts. An intriguing wine with white peach, grapefruit, ginger and a suggestion of mandarin blossom. Smooth-textured wine. Fruity acidity gives the wine energy and a lingering finish. 30 JUN 2020." Drink 2020 - 2023

91/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"An elegant rendition, showing grapefruit, golden apple, lemon peel and toasted nut characters on the nose with a hint of flinty complexity. It's beautifully weighted on the palate displaying fine texture and creamy mouthfeel, brilliantly structured by firm acidity, leading to a lengthy refined finish. At its best: now to 2021. $28.00. www.carrick.co.nz. Aug 2020." Drink 2020 - 2021
