Elegant and refined, the wine exhibits white stone fruit, lemon pith, fig and almond characters with a hint of brioche notes. The palate is concentrated and focused, and displays pristine fruit flavours together with subtle oak infusion and savoury undertones. The wine is tightly structured and restrained, and promises to evolve gracefully. At its best now to 2020.
"COLOUR: Rich straw gold.
AROMA: Intense and complex, this wine displays aromas of white peach and mandarin peel integrated with brioche and macadamia nut aromas from the French oak influence.
PALATE: Ripe stone fruit flavours of peach and dried apricot are complimented by a flinty minerality and subtle French oak influence giving hints of roasted hazelnut. A tight, well-structured palate with underlying minerality gives the wine seamless length and complexity.
Auntsfield continues the proud heritage of Marlborough’s first vineyard and winery established in 1873.
Our Single Vineyard wines are made from grapes grown at Auntsfield Estate. Each wine shows the distinctive characteristics of ripeness, texture and minerality – qualities unique to the ancient Greywacke rock and Loess clay soils of the vineyard.
Auntsfield produces Chardonnay with finesse, restraint, honed focus and a textured mineral structure. Only the best fruit is used with the resulting wine showing a real sense of place that showcases the mineral structure of the old clay soils of the vineyard." - Winery
