Description

Astrolabe Marlborough Chardonnay 2017

Astrolabe Marlborough Chardonnay has texture and a tight structure. Medium straw-gold colour. Greets you with ripe melon and dried stone fruit aromas with notes of butter and vanilla. The dry, elegant palate has a bright acidity, lots of texture and a tight structure. Apple and stone fruit flavours with a vanilla creaminess, a hint of lemon citrus and generous nuances of nutty oak. Closes in a long salty mineral finish.

100% Chardonnay. The grapes come from Wrekin vineyard on the clay hillsides of the Southern Valley and Astrolabe Farm vineyard in the Lower-Wairau Valley. The vines are largely grown on a free-draining silty loam, with some on the tight clays of a steeply sloping hillside.

Hand-picking and whole-bunch pressing of the fruit. The free-run juice, otherwise known as cuveé, goes through fermentation in French oak puncheons and barriques with both select and wild yeast. Frequent bâtonnage as the wine undergoes full malolactic fermentation and 10 months barrel maturation in 500 litre oak puncheons. No fining before bottling.

 

Ageing potential: will continue to develop rewarding flavour and bottle complexity with ageing.
