2017 Tatty Bogler Waitaki Chardonnay

THE VINEYARD

Cocooned by mountains on all sides, the Waitaki Valley wine-growing region lies 40km inland from the Pacific Ocean on the southern flanks of the Waitaki River. Our warm north west sloping vineyard consists of ancient white limestone soils, inter-layered with river gravels,  allowing grapes to truly ripen in this southerly latitude.

TASTING NOTES

A southern hemisphere twist on French Chablis. Fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barriques; it has a delicate fragrant bouquet of green apple and aromatic herbs, accompanied by nutty, toasted brioche undertones. A powerful weighty wine with refined citrus flavours and hints of ripe quince. Buttery and creamy on the palate with a strong “chalky” mineral backbone.

-Uniquely Waitaki!
