Anura Estate Chardonnay 2018

Winemaking Process
Grapes are hand picked early morning to keep the juice temperatures cool and preserve fresh, clean fruit flavours. Fermentation initiated in French oak barrels (15%) using natural yeast and the balance fermented in tank using, VIN 13, a commercial yeast.

Maturation
15% of the wine aged in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels for 4 months after fermentation completes. 85% remained in tank after fermentation to preserve fresh fruit flavours and to have a very lightly wooded wine once blended together with the oak component.

Tasting Comments
Elegant lemon, lime and papaya flavours, combined with a floral bouquet and hints of spice and honey which are integrated with a very subtle French oak and mineral aroma. This wine has a fresh, juicy palate and should be serve chilled. Paired beautifully with fresh fruit, salads, fish, light meals and sushi.
