Monowai Upper Reaches Chardonnay 2019

Tasting Notes

A selected parcel of premium fruit was chosen and carefully tended from the vine to the barrel to bring you our Upper Reaches selection, a smooth, full bodied wine. The fresh fruit aromas of peaches and apricot are complimented by buttery toasted notes adding layers of complexity.

Winemaker's Notes

Fruit was selectively harvested at optimum ripeness, gently pressed and fermented between 12-15˚C to maximise freshness and aroma. Underwent 100% MLF and was fermented and aged in new and 1-2 year old French oak barrels.

Region: Hawke's Bay
Alcohol: 14%  pH: 3.55  RS: <2g/L  
TA: 5.3  

Cellaring

Delicious for drinking right now, this wine has the potential to cellar for another 5 years over which it will develop an added richness and complexity.

Food Match

This smooth Chardonnay would be the perfect match for a creamy pasta dish, or lemon baked chicken.
