Tasting Note:

The Om Santi Chardonnay 2018 is a barrel selection from the Om Santi vineyard and its terraced, shallow gravelly soils. A cool site producing New Zealand Chardonnay with a minerally lilt. This boasts a great expression of fresh fruit and plush texture yet maintains a certain linearity and mineral quality. Beautifully clear and defined, the fruit is peachy and engaging but has a very fine seam of freshness giving it backbone and direction. A dry stone mineral quality adds interest whilst the gentle oak reveals itself in the background adding a complimentary nuttiness. This whole bunch pressed, wild yeast fermented Chardonnay is aged for 14 months in French oak barriques and is bottled without fining or filtration. It possesses great zip, texture and class.
