The Native Grace Chardonnay is produced from 100% chardonnay from rows 78-87 of the Henners vineyard. Chardonnay loves this site, especially in warm years and these rows were identified during ripening and harvest as having outstanding potential for still wine production, with excellent sugar levels, low acidity and displaying wonderful classic chardonnay fruit flavours including stone fruit, floral and citrus notes All grapes were picked by hand. Fermentation at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks, with a neutral yeast, before the wine went through malolactic fermentation.
Delicate aromas of elderflower and green apple lead on to clean and elegant palate. Crunchy green apple and lemon fruit combine with a good palate weight to provide lovely concentration and a long finish with distinctive minerality.
Serve chilled accompanying light meats, grilled fish and salads.
