Description

Two Rivers Clos des Pierres Chardonnay 2017

Two Rivers Clos des Pierres Chardonnay shows great poise and a wonderful minerality. Bright lemon colour. Focused bouquet of almond blossoms, stone fruit, vanilla and toasty nutty aromas. The dry and medium-bodied palate is elegant and linear. Concentrated and full rich flavours of white peach, lemon citrus and ripe apricot over nutty almond butter, minerals and honey nuances.

100% Chardonnay from a single vineyard, Clos des Pierres (place of stones).

Hand harvesting of the fruit, then light whole bunch pressing and natural fermentation. The wine ages for 11 months in 4,500L French oak and concrete egg tanks. Full malolactic fermentation occurs during maturation. No filtering before bottling.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is firmly-packed with deep and intense, well-concentrated aromas of yellow stonefruits, citrus fruit, and a core of creamy, nutty oak melded with complexing flinty detail unfolding savoury mineral elements. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with taut and well-bound flavours of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit entwined with mealy interest and nutty oak with nuances of flint. The palate has intensity and linear drive, with some underlying power, and the wine carries with fresh acid energy to an elegant, lingering finish. This is an intense and concentrated Chardonnay with stonefruit, citrus fruit, meal and nutty complexities and a hint of flint on a linear, well-driven palate. Match with grilled and roasted seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit from two sites, ‘The Spring’ in the Wairau Valley with 27 y.o. Mendoza, and ‘Brookby Hill, Southern Valleys with clones 15 and 95, WBP and filly barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 25% new French oak undergoing batonnage and full MLF. 1,100 cases made. 18.5/20
