Colour / Appearance: Mid-deep straw, with a bright clarity
Aroma / Bouquet: Ripe citrus and pineapple, with some peach aromas, overlaid with butter notes from the malolactic fermentation and some savoury char from the French oak barrels.
Palate: A medium bodied wine with a soft, plush texture and some creaminess from the extended maturation on yeast lees. Stonefruit and citrus dominate, and the oak lends an attractive dry finish.
Cellaring: We recommend drinking our 2018 Kōparepare Chardonnay from now and over the next 3-5 years.
Food Match: Our Chardonnay is a great partner for pasta and pizza dishes, tapas and lighter game and veal.
Serve: Lightly chilled.
