Craggy Range Chardonnay


Kidnapper's Chardonnay Hawkey's Bay 

In the traditional Chablis style, this wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, large French oak vats and puncheons. This single-vineyard Chardonnay has an elegant, balanced and refined character.

This cool climate wine's juicy, bright and fresh aromas and flavors are a perfect compliment to shellfish and seafood. A beautiful Chardonnay aged for 8 months in 15% new French oak barrels before fining and filtering

A vibrant and fresh feel with lively acidity. Fresh lemon curd and supple oak balance on the palate. Deliciously refreshing.

Tasting Notes 

Pale lime to pale straw. Instantly you are reminded of the coastal nature of this vineyard, with oyster shell, sea spray and cashew all present in the bouquet. Overall, the mouth feels vibrant and fresh, with lively acidity, but not at the expense of flavour. Fresh lemon curd and supple oak round out a palate that is as delicious as it is refreshing.

Serving temperature: 8º - 10ºC
