Monowai Chardonnay 2014

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe peach abound in this pale gold wine, with subtle undertones of buttery oak adding layers of complexity. A balance of fresh fruit, malolactic and oak influences have resulted in a full bodied wine with stonefruit flavours, underscored by buttery, nutty notes and a hint of citrus.

Winemaker's Notes

Fruit was selectively harvested at optimum ripeness, gently pressed and fermented between 12-15˚C to maximise freshness and aroma. 60% was fermented in Oak barrels and underwent malolactic fermentation while the other 40% was aged sur lie in stainless tanks to retain fruit freshness. A portion of this Chardonnay underwent malolactic fermentation and ageing in French Oak barrels.
