Goldwater were established 1978, they had the vision to sow one of New Zealand's very first vineyards on Waiheke Island in Hauraki Gulf. They now make their home amongst the coddled blocks of vine in Marlborough's Wairau Valley. To create a Chardonnay of superior palate weight, a number of Burgundian techniques are employed, a rich course of barrel ferments and eight months lees battonage in French oak. Its vibrant peach bouquet precedes a textural palate of toasty creamyness, the temperate tropicality of apricots and lime, impeccably balanced, silky and refined.
Chardonnay is sourced from vineyards planted to auspicious silty gravel clays, exceptional terroirs which encourage the development of rich and exciting esters in the grapes. The finest blocks, husbanded by dedicated growers, are gently harvested throughout the cool hours of early morning, to capture and preserve all the crisp, pristine fruit characters of Chardonnay ripening on the vine. Bunches are treated to a gentle crushing and long, languid course of ferments, followed by a term of maturation in French oak barriques to round the palate while infusing creamy, aromatic complexity.
